Mind On Fire Living With Depression

Comes from the words of those cruel people,
And from those who physically abuse you.
Sometimes you just have to cry it all,

Richmond Gellez
What Do I Care?

What do I care, in the dreams and the languor of spring,
That my songs do not show me at all?
For they are a fragrance, and I am a flint and a fire,
I am an answer, they are only a call.

As if the cloud that instant slit
And let the fire through.

Raped Future

Wailing in hunger. Many tongues scrabbling for a single bone
Living corpses pile the street.
I hear soothsayers boast in their ignorance and claim a stolen future

Sara Teasdale
A Song In The Desert

Friend, thou beholdest the lightning? Who has the charge of it,
To decree which rock-ridge shall receive, shall be chosen for targe of it?
Which crown among palms shall go down, by the thunderbolt broken;
While the floods drown the sere wadis where no bud is token?

Where, every side, great briers reach
And cling like hands, the beechdrops crowd

For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

Walt Whitman
Almost Lost My Love.

Its a pretty day today, I love days like these because the cold soothing wind that blows is a reminder of you being by my side no matter what comes. The clouds that shelter me from the sun remind me of how the thought of you keeps all the dark memories away. The slight rain feels like your kisses filled with love and compassion making me sure of good and kindness in this world
But today isn't a pretty day although it's like the ones i look forward to the most, but just like most things i ruined it.
The clouds are darker than i remember and the thougts they bring darker still.
The slight rain mirrors my eyes and no matter how much the clouds and I cry we cant wash my guilt away.

My walls burnt down to a beautiful flame.

No tea, no nothing but the weather.

A finer fire than you see in a preacher.

Az Mo
A Good Soldier

He writes to us most every day, and how his letters thrill us!
I can't describe the joys with which his quaint expressions fill us.

He's only soldiering to-day to give the Flag protection.

Their lives away.

Christina Rossetti

That sees the tall, fair-haired Barbarians pass,-the while

Of gold, with languid sunshine dancing in each line.

The worser spirit a woman colour'd ill.

And spread thy golden wings in me;
Hatching my tender heart so long,
Till it get wing, and fly away with thee.
