Depression & Mental Health, Poems



Cold and harsh as winter

Searing pain

Stabbing my brain

Like splinters

Trapped beneath the skin

That I couldn’t pull out

So I pushed further in

Forcing them deeper

‘Til they were hidden


From the outside

They will never be evident

But I will always feel them

A part of me

So I must learn to handle the pain

The guilt

The regret

And not let any of it consume me


And maybe

I will one day find the means

To remove the splinters

And heal
