lonely and looking to die
As I get deeper and deeper the pain starts to go away,  
The reality of me seems to fade,  
I never looked back at who I used to be,  
Just as long as I can see,  
I know that it is hard to see for me,  
For I am already halfblind you see,  
But I cant see clearly without you by my side,  
So the blindness is starting to kick in without a sign,  
Now that I dont see your face,  
What is wrong with me!,  
Why do people call me creppy,  
Each insult just ends with another cut at the end of the day,  
For now Im running out of space on my body.

Please clarify what you are looking for here--poems, prose?  How many entries per person? Word limit if any, etc.  If this is to be a competition, you need to spell out the rules a bit; posting a poem of your own should go in you "My Poems" section, unless you are using it as an example for what you'd like others to add to your comp.  As you are a new member, it might be a good idea to have a more in-depth look around the webpage, to get a better comfort level, navigating the site, as this will help you in any future postings you contribute/competitions you may run.

Thanks and welcome to DUP

You Can't Calm the Waves, but You Can Learn to Surf

By; Mike R Stewart



To kill yourself is dumb
Life's for all not some

If you feel beaten like a drum
Stand up and give them some

Of your best plan
Manifest the request when
Without question

Your life is a mess and

The west end


Isn't looking that great
Don't be shook'en by hate

That other people create


Just handle your own
Don't be a sandal at home


Getting stepped on


Unless your the asshole
Bringing the stress wrong(Ly)
created ( by u )
Unless I know your
story un-rated?


I don't know why peoples lives are frustrated



And I know this

Problems are a part of life
Don't loose focus!


Depression is a choice
Understand inner voice

Before acting

Realize your self as impacting
The life you live

Things can always turn to positive




If aim at nothing? You're bound to hit it

Understand committed


Wear a life that's fitted



To want you want in long term


Ignorance is a strong germ



Don't let it infect
Forget who respect you

Unless they project true


Respect to you first


Unless your an asshole and it's your fault that
Your cursed

Life can reverse

Things could be worse


Let your disperse


Plan ahead is the first (thing u need to do)


It's a choice to proceed as blue



You can't do everything; but you can do something
Don't pretend others humping

Your life without stuffing


The ownership


Life will fuck you with a boner quick
Unless u own the sick


Mentality
Within
Your reality


Depression is a choice
That the blame game employs

Work hard, obtain all your joys



It's up to you
Death?
Is something you


Can decide to do
But it's only denying true


Potential that is within you
Pessimistic is the plan few

Will ever succeed with
Deliver your keen lift


Outta the issues
Don't pout about misuse

Of your trust of love

You can choose to say
Enough's enough


But try hard
Don't blame on
Some sky lord

Words are my sword
Please don't ever just die for it

(Life's bullshit)

Going Deeper.

The Blade Goes Deeper And Deeper,
My Body Is Numb,
The World Becomes Black.....
I'm Running Out Of Space.....
The Blade Cuts Deeper And Deeper,
Until The Blade Falls To The Floor,
My Body Is At War,But My Mind At peace,
Going Deeper And Deeper,
Looking Up At The Sky And Smiling,
I'm Almost Gone I Whisper To Myself....
Just Let Go Already.....
My Body Struggleing Not To Give Up The Fight,
But My Mind Wants To Let Go.......
Deeper And Deeper The Blade Goes......
It use To Be My Only Hope.........
Deeper And Deeper.....Into The Dark And Peace

Tick Tock
By; David Wolf

Tick tock,
My heart beats to the sound of my death clock,
Wishing it to all be over soon,
The sun is out but I'm forever talking to the moon...
The moons rays are all that calms me,
Maybe its because when it talk to it I feel you clearly,
Even though I see you everywhere I go,
More the most when I saw you dancing in the snow...
The winter hurt so bad but I miss it the most,
Sometimes I feel its not you who's the ghost,
But maybe its me living where I don't belong,
On my knees in tears everytime I hear your song...
What can I do when all I want is to have you back,
The pain on my shoulders never leaves all it does is stack,
I can't let you go my little angel how can they tell me too?
When every single day I wish it was me not you!!
Your my pain my strength too,
The cold musky nights and the sweet morning dew,
Your every particle of this world around me,
Ill never be whole again til I'm with you and my soul is finally free...

My love
why is a raven
like a writing desk??
I tried the door mouse
but all I got
was a door to the face

One slice
For every time I kissed your lips
Drip……
Every time my walls gave into your ink
DRip….
Every time my lips went below
I now know I sucked
After that moment , everything seemed so unreal
DRIp……
For someone to come from between my legs , in such a pleasurable way
I would have never know you had came out in a painful way
DRIP…
Its okay though , My Love
Mother will always love you
This silver metal
That shine so bright
Has become my friend
It lingers on my skin in ways you could never
It takes my worries and vision away
DRIPPP……
When find me
Hush now
Don’t you cry
I cut my arm
I had to say goodbye
I used a razor
I used a knife
I tore my skin
I couldn’t win this fight
PS: When you get a chance , clean the tub

No More Pain

Even though I'm a bad ass,
My heart's as fragile as glass,
Oh you were so wonderful,
And that's what made it awful,
My hearts completely broken,
With words of love still unspoken,
I go in my bathroom and fucking cut,
It only hurts somewhat.

My true pain is losing you,
Is there anything I can do?
No you made that clear before,
And my body hits the floor,
Huge slits down my fucking forearm,
You made me self harm,
Bathroom carpet stained dark red,
It's done, I'm almost dead.

The pain is finally gone,
These bright lights turn on,
Full of warmth and happiness,
Bye bye goes the darkness,
You are once and for all free,
You've finally gotten rid of me.

Scarred an Blue
C F G Em F C
Feeling alright, little music to drive too tonight
Eddie would always say, nothings too late,
Come what may, little darlin we’d always find a way,
even if it is the other way
We can always live or end life our way
No, nothings ever too late,
The secret you see, just sit back and surrender to the trick of the beat
~~~ ~~~   ~~~
No, Hell hath no fury
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Mmm- my Mary was sweet,
She always smiled,,, and had kind words for everyone she’d meet
on troubles through tears, Mary always had another way of handlin fear
And Mary would dance, she always came to me when life turned scarred and blue
What could I do, she would pull me into her trance when it all became too real
Lord; how I’ll remember and miss my time with you,
Maria, yes Ed, I’m goin to kill us, why?!?!
to release our souls, I think there’s another way of lookin at life,
there is no relief
no more crying, no more tears,
Come take my hand, not everything shining is the Promised Land,
a little music to drive too tonight
Just feel the beat, and close your eyes when comes the trick of the beat
And pretty soon well have another way of lookin at life,
Feeling alright, little music to drive too tonight
No nothings ever too late,
Come what may, little darlin’ we’d always find another way
My Mary was sweet, Mmm- yes Lord, my Mary was sweet
she always came to me when she was scarred and blue
