Down into the depths of her mind

lives a creature who's not very kind

His fangs are sharp and ready to slice

been there, done that more than thrice

This little monster isn't all that rare

he shows up in school, dreams, nightmares


The teachers always said she was out of tune

already gone but much too soon

In their thoughts they held her soul close by

made sure she was fine but hoped not to pry

Now, she's still alive, hanging by a string

a tired angel flying with only one wing


You'd think her peers would want to stop in

Take a little time to wash her of sin

Maybe tell a tale or grasp her hand

stare for a while at her wristband

As much as I'd love to tell you a lie

they never said anything but “try not to die”


Her parents, oh God, they were the worst

only came once to sit and to curse

A phone call or two, but that was the end

they were scared their little girl wasn't on mend

This made her sad, afraid of it being her fault

that she had to go and bring her life to a halt


A standstill, really, because of that creature

the one with the fangs and fairytale features

Now this young child lies in a blank

no one there but herself to thank

This monster inside her has become an obsession

the deepest and darkest of all the depressions

This was written for a friend who has been going through some rough times. I hope she enjoys this piece. <3

Wow, er shit, what can I say? This is beautiful and hauntingly accurate. I have bipolar and I can so relate to the behaviours of others around me. I sometimes think that they are the ones who need the psychiatrist.
My favourite line has to be,
'A standstill, really, because of that creature
The one with the fangs and the fairytale features'
This is fantastic and going straight into my favourites

I'm glad to hear you believe this is accurate. I had a fun time writing it and have to say it's one of my favourite pieces now.
