poem.. and bleakness is my friend
« on: 11 Jul 2013 09:53PM »
I guess most people with a mental illness, and many who dont too, will identify with this thought and feeling pattern sometimes. >steam< >bighugs<


I am lost.
Alone and wandering in the wilderness
Which Is the land of my life
And bleakness is my friend

I have no map and no compass
And my guides have all deserted
And I cannot find the way
And bleakness is my friend

And if I cry for help,
All I hear is condemnation for
“I brought this on myself”
And bleakness is my friend.

And guilt is engulfing
And there is no white knight
And no one will save me
But me.
And bleakness is my friend

And bleakness is my friend
For he will never leave me
Tho he is cruel , hes here, hes here.
And bleakness is my friend.

And if I were to lose him
What would I have then?
A black and empty heart space
And bleakness is my friend.
If you have a true and loyal friend you indeed have a goodly share of lifes riches

Oh yes, Myrtle, I can fully identify with what you're expressing here - I hope you find a better 'companion' soon and can boot out the bleakness ("with friends like that, who needs enemies" etc)

I liked it  >star<

It made me think of the moors and how desolate they can feel.

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed that the original post is dated July 2013.

As far as I am aware we haven't heard from Myrtle for some time. I hope she is ok.

Myrtle last posted on 19 June (this year) on our 'goodbye' thread for Debs - she does tend to take quite long breaks between visits to the board for reasons I think she explained earlier in the year? - hopefully we will see her again before too much longer.
