Lost Mind

 Can you hear yourself over the anger?
 Can you still think straight?
 Does it keep you from apologizing later?
 Or does it drive you to extreme mental states?
 
 Can you see through the devil,
 As he proposes his plan?
 Can you see through the evil,
 As he comes to collect what you’ve had?

 He will disguise himself well,
 Playing the part of your favorite friend,
 You might not hear the ringing bell,
 As your time comes to an end.

 Where is the angel that you prayed for?
 Have you lost your credit with heaven?
 Have you lost yourself before,
 In this hell called depression?
 Where all of your wrongs play on repeat
 No matter that you regret it as you are not forgiven.

 Have you seen the desperation in your eyes?
 The longing for a good time,
 The longing for a peaceful time,
 The lack of love and compassion is all evident
 Receiving of any will cause you to be hesitant
 
 Closed eyes, closed soul, closed heart,
 Closed mind, closed love with no fresh restart

I have been writing poetry since a teenager but did not have the courage to really show it off. It wasn't until I had some tools as I battled depression and mental illness. They are still a part of me, which you will see for yourself. My writing is dark and raw.
