Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King

Far Away | Caryl Churchill

This town don't feel mine
I'm fast to get away-FAR
Drive me far away
I don't care where just far

blurb
Trashcanman

Last night I dreamt I was dead
I came running with my dog into the realm of the dead

There was nothing to be seen
Only stones and a few bushes
A landscape that travelers have often spoken of

I would rather not die here
But in my own home, where I was not dead

All the death, all the death
In the course of a life

blurb
Trashcanman

I wonder today, I'm alone, but then
No one can make their own life.
No one can say that they're an island
When all this freedom you get is a lie

Sickness | Katherine A Applegate


The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick
The whole thing, I think it's sick

Say hello to the rug's topography
It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it
Say hello to the shrinking in your head
You can't see it but you know its there so don't neglect it

blurb
Trashcanman

I want to have the same last dream again,
The one where I wake up and I'm alive.
Just as the four walls close me within,
My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight.
I'm the first to know,
My dearest friends,
Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that's dead shall be re-grown,
And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
You will be fine.

Doused | Nichelle Rae

Never had you run so far but you really gotta get away
You know it in the nighttime running to it
Caught a rising star but then you let it drop into
The ocean now the water's running through it
Now you've gone so far you really had to get away
You knew it in your lifetime, running to it
Acting like you've come so far the bed you made yourself
And this house and me are all falling apart

blurb
Trashcanman

Dear God, how have you been then?
I'm not fine, fuck pretending
All of this death you‘re sending
Best throw some free heart mending

BookwormAHN Nice one. 7d

Back up the cul-de-sac
Come on, do your worst
You quit your job again
And your train of thought
If you could do it all again
A little fairy dust
A thousand tiny birds singing
If you must, you must
Please let me know
When you've had enough
Of the white light
Of the dawn chorus

quote

Where have I been all this time?
Lost enslaved fatal decline
I've been waiting for this to unfold
But the pieces are only as good as the whole

Severed myself from my whole life
Cut out the only thing that was right
What if I never saw you again
I'd die right next to you in the end

Rabbit, Run | John Updike

I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Scared of the spotlight

Thin rubber gloves
She laughs when she's crying
She cries when she's laughing
Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away

Mailman | J. Robert Lennon

Hello don't you know me
I'm the dirt beneath your feet
The most important fool you forgot to see
I've seen how you give it
Now I want you to receive
I'm sure, for you would do the same for me

Doused | Nichelle Rae

Never thought you'd go so far but now you're really
Gone and it's been so long I never really think about it
You made a beating heart, whatever, now that amber
Light has faded and it's yours to commit it
Act like it stops and starts, a gesture here and there
For me is one thing but I felt it every time you blew it
Now you've gone too far, your urge to run away is back and we all know.

I have 5 books that I always recommend and an author that I tell people to stay away from

1) The Catcher in the Rye
2) A confession Lev Tolstoy
3) Letters to a young poet by Rainer Maria Rilke
4) Darkness Visible by William Styron
5) The myth of Sisyphus by Camu

And you know who to stay away from.

Bipolar | C. Raymond Lake
post image

I feel that this has given me the most incredible and wonderful thing that I have ever been given, and also, the worst. It's a mixed bag I have been taken to the, absolutely, to the depths of extreme terror by this
I've had my whole soul undermined by it, on the one hand
On the other hand in one sense, my experience has been about finding joy.

jdiehr 💜 2w
jdiehr May you be filled with hope and joy, George 2w
Centique I have a lovely friend who is bipolar. It took a long time to get under control. And I don‘t know if she ever feels convinced that it is. She is, and always has been, one of the smartest, most brilliant people I‘ve ever met. I get it when she tells me how people patronise her because of it. (I mean I think I get it) All the baggage that goes with it 💕💕 2w

But know in your tragedy, feels kind of fade sometimes

Goodbye, you great fool

After I had children I would feel differently, I wouldn‘t want to write poems any more. So I began to think maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed, and afterward you went about numb as a slave in some private, totalitarian state.

My life was falling somewhere between mental anguish and boredom. I tended to resist any kind of joy, even when I longed to live a more exciting life. I couldn‘t make even small or simple changes, and I wasn‘t able to shift my thinking.

The pain of severe depression is quite unimaginable to those who have not suffered it, and it kills in many instances because its anguish can no longer be borne. The prevention of many suicides will continue to be hindered until there is a general awareness of the nature of this pain.

Karkar Yes I totally agree. I remember people used to tell me just quit wearing black and wear bright colors and it would help. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 2mo
