A poem, written by me, not complete yet

I’ve started working through feelings and struggles by channeling my thoughts onto paper in the form of poetry.

this is my first poem. I don’t think it’s that good. 

What do you think?


Hiding the hurt,

Hiding the pain,

Hiding the tears that fall like rain,

Saying I’m fine when I’m anything but,

This ache in my heart rips at my gut,

My skin is on fire,

I burn from within,

The calm on my face is an ongoing sin,

Loneliness consumes me,

It eats away the years,

Until my life is swallowed by unending fears,

It’s getting harder to hide,

All the feelings I’ve built up inside,

It seems to be,

That the struggles are always with me,

Cluttered mind,

Cluttered thinking,

It’s hard to keep in touch,

with what’s around me,

And not worry too much.


Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

Hey @Jesssister2001, that is some pretty rough stuff that you have been able to get off your chest. I think you write really well and have been able to paint a picture of how you have been feeling lately. Writing can be a great way to give our feelings a tangible form so we can then process and work through our troubles. How did you feel after writing the poem?


All of what you mentioned sounds like it is a lot to deal with and has been going on for some time.. I am wondering if you have spoken to anyone about these feelings? Do you have anyone to support you? Heart
