My name is Danielle. I am 35 yrs old and have been writing poetry since I was about 16. I got into writing because I loved reading the poems found in the obituaries (weird right?) Anyway, I wanted to write poems like that but my mind wandered in a different direction. I started writing about death and suicide and it stuck. I have tried other forms and nothing fits. So this is what you get.

Better me

It's funny to me how you feel like you can control me
In all reality you are nothing to me!
Why do you feel the need to cut me down so badly?
If you hate me that much then fucking leave me!
Does it make you feel good when you make fun of me?

Burnt out

Another day, another heartache
Why can't I just make it through one day without feeling all this pain?
I really don't think I'm that bad of a person
But maybe just maybe I don't see what everyone else sees
Maybe I am just a body taking up space

I'm drowning in emotion
Trying to hide what I can
As each day passes it becomes harder to stand!
What is wrong with me?
I'm hated by all
My life is a wrecking ball
Just when I think I'm getting back on track
Something pushes me 8 steps back

Why does it matter anymore?
Why do I care?
I am not made to live this life
I am just so unhappy all the time!
People always judging and treating me like shit
I'm just so over all of it
No one cares about me
Yet my hearts as big as gold

Matter of time

I almost did what I have been trying to avoid
I almost ended my life
You see things get to be to much
One thing after another
Nothing giving up
I'm being pushed and pulled
I don't know where to turn
I feel lost in this world
Like I just...
