He wakes up feeling helpless,
wears the same clothes every day
His eyes are red and swollen
from the tears he held at bay
He smiles, for a second
but the skies are always grey
he’s broken and he’s lonely
heaven knows he’s lost his way

~ Andrew
I’ve been feeling a little bit lost with my writing recently, nothing makes me feel accomplished and I’m finding it harder to post things I’m not entirely satisfied with

  1. FAB poem Andrew! It reminded me of a man in here named Roy who is mentally ill….somewhere between Bi-Polar & Schizoid…he is avoided (because of his volatile outbursts) & does not change clothes or bathe for days…..so very sad….
    I know you were writing about yourself & you are by no means mentally unwell>>> I just ‘saw’ Roy in this poem 😉
