I Remember


the unfortunate day, i remember
the sharp carving knife, i remember
over the veins of my wrist, i remember
i try to slit but i can't, i remember

i close my eyes, i remember
memories pleasant, memories regretted, i remember
pandemonium in my mind, HAVOC! ! ! i remember
i begin to scream AHHH! ! ! AHHH! ! ! i remember

i cannot forget
...the tears
......the mucus
.........the saliva
...........................dripping
...........................dropping
.......... .................drooling

i jerk my head from side to side, i remember
death has his hands on my back
transfering his wiles into me, i remember
I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANY MORE! ! ! i remember

diazepam, zoloft in my hand, i remember
bottoms up, down they go, i remember
i lay on my bed, i close my eyes, i remember
praying they never ever open, i remember

three days pass, i remember
i awake, i remember
hands over my face, i beging to cry.........

i'll never forge

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
