“I Know You’re There”…
By, Maxwanette A Poetess
It sneaks up on me, like a silent predator,
Hungrily eyeing its prey.
I can’t see it, but I know it’s there.
I feel it looming in the shadows,
Lurking in the corners and doorways.
Jeering & taunting, pretending friendship,
Begging for me to let it in.
Giving me flashbacks of my life,
And how empty it’s been.
Reminding me of my past failures,
Belittling my accomplishments.
Toying with my mind, my emotions….
Unraveling me and tossing me away,
Like yesterday’s trash.
It’s a tug-of-war of wits & emotions,
Who’s keeping count of the odds?
I feel like I’m drowning, and no one cares,
It’s like falling and no one is there to catch me.
I know you’re there, dammit, leave me alone!!
*Inspired by the demon Mental Illness can be.
🧠Please note: “MENTAL ILLNESS IS REAL”🧠
I’m not a physician nor do I give medical advice. But I advise, that if you’re suffering from a Mental Illness, you need help. Something happened that caused you to be this way. It’s okay to own that & get help to deal with the demons within self that you’re fighting. Sometimes it’s not easy & can cause more damage. It’s alright to get help.
There are so many ways & methods that one can try. The point is to see that there’s a problem, face it, get help without feeling ashamed in doing so – did you know even therapist have therapists? Just saying. We all need help at one time or another when life can become too stressful and or when trying to deal with life’s traumas.
Find what works for you & stick with it. Mental Illness can become an internal prison. It changes how one sees, feels & thinks about life. Trauma & Stress can turn the mind into an internal weapon. It can become a personal maze of pain & hell.
Its sad that with how many people suffer with Mental Illness, that more isn’t done & the stigma attached removed. It’s okay. Many people are suffering & pretend or deny it. Heck! Some are oblivious to it. You’re not the minority. Check out this link below. MANY PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING
I can say from personal experiences, if you sit on it & do nothing? You’re shortening your life span and cutting a poor path for your existence and all you encounter.
Get help, talk to somebody, seek ways to heal yourself. Because no one can do it for you. Most of all? Try to remember that you deserve to have a happy, free and beautiful life too.
