Poem: As the tears fall my heart breaks
and shatters to pieces on this dirty carpeted floor
This voice that speaks to me is a broken voice
of my reality
I am sorry for my inability to control
my angry aggressive madness or
even my words of kindness that may seem unhealthy to you
Have you ever been so down you wanted to die
or so high you thought you could fly
Maybe this pill or that pill will help
maybe one more of this will even her out
It''s not easy to swallow my sanity every day
but that is my life
and I will love you from afar and
thank you for honesty and strength
Know that I am aware of my faults
you do not have to remind me as if
you were telling me something new...
