No More Therapy

Nothing works anymore...
I can't drown out the sounds
The thoughts are much heavier than before...
My anxiety symptoms are just too fucking loud

I remember the dreamless days
And the insomniatic nights
Of my shame
In my mind

Growing up in this society
I got lost
Being raised around hypocrisy
I am wrong
Surrounded by external doubts
Named: Family and Friends
Secrets can't get let out
Or abandonment will make its descent

Screaming urges silenced / Eyes defining hopelessness
Light remains motionless / Composure becomes broken

Blood is denser than water
They only love you for your lies
No matter what, we'll always stick together
And tell you how to live every single day of your life
Shrouding the skin I'm contained in...
I can't escape the words of fate that await
I don't know where the wound will end, or begin...
The fading hymn of empowerment continues to grow faint

I'm haunted by the colorless dawns
And the unfaithful dusks
Hearing the lyrics of death's siren song
Following the flow is a must

The past can't be undone
It's become an influence to me
I never experienced the indulgence of love
But I know yours would have been my only effective therapy
Sometimes I just feel like, quittin' I still might
Why do I put up this fight, why do I still write
Sometimes it's hard enough just dealin' with real life

Your anguish shines through. Sometimes therapists seem like artificial sweeteners, most often they're temporarily satisfying in the moment but devoid of substance in the long run...  

I hope life gets better soon.  *hug*

After recent events I can totally agree with you.

life is full of hardships and therapists can't know how to cure everything. Something's we have to soothe on our own. This poem is full of pain and sorrow. I like all the wonderfully descriptive descriptions you use (is that too repetitive?) . You have a way with words and painting a picture in our heads.

Yeah, I guess therapists can't do everything. And you're right, sometimes we have to find the sense of peace on our own.

I changed some words and lines around to make it flow better. I'm so happy that you liked this one. If I had to choose one poem that could describe the whole project- I'd have this choose this one out of all.

well, I like it, and not to toot my own horn or anything; but that's all that matters in life. :D

I really do like the part when you contrast the fault between her's and yours quite well, although I'm still a bit confused with what sort of therapy is it, or how it is used. Great job still :)

I don't know how you came to assume there is a "Her" or a "Him" in this piece, I didn't mention any genders. This is more about a person with severe mental health issues, and not being able to cope with them. And I know the whole concept is kind of weird, but I tried to get the point across that there is no such therapy that could help this person. None what-so-ever. So, that's why it ends like that. I apologize for it being kind of scrambled.

"There is no therapy
That could cure me"

Oh. I understand it now. Thanks for clarifying it :).
(Yeah, I was kinda sick yesterday from diarrhea. My head was wacked up then. Sorry! ;) )
