My thoughts on paper today 😏

Posted , 9 users are following.

They took away my meds

They hung me out to dry

My world began to crumble

And all I did was cry

The paramedics came around

They rushed me to A & E

They said, carry on as normal

It's only anxiety

My body shook n shuddered

My mood was mean and low

I pushed away my loved ones

I wanted to die, just go

Now 5 weeks down the road

I finally did see

A very good psychiatrist

And he agreed with me

Yes I have depression

But this was not the cause

The abrupt cease of medication

Withdrawal has its flaws

And now I am back on the meds

And other meds as well

I'm already feeling better

I'm not living in such hell

I look at all the scars I made

And think of things I've said

I can't believe that that was me

So close to my death bed

I'm not out of the woods yet

I've still got far to go

So much is bottled up inside me

Some things I didn't know

    You expressed your awful experience so well Belinda. It's strange that they took you off the medication. Hope you are soon writing poems on your much brighter experiences.

    Lovely expressive poem! You have talent...why not try and take it further and see where it may lead? Writing is very healing, and you may unearth a hidden passion along the way.

    Remember, just eat the elephant in your life one bite at a time...wish you the best.
