Treasure Island

sandy nobody

(midwest, usa)


i went to a doctor
he said'you look depressed'
i said'no,
maybe im a little stressed'

he gave me some pills
to help me 'feel happy'
after a few days
i no longer felt crappy

in fact
i was totally numb
i felt nothing
i mustve looked dumb

i walked around
like the living dead
thoughts no longer
inside my head

no more feelings
happy, sad nor pain
no more thinking
no more anything

the pills did their job
they made me 'well'
now im just a mindless
empty shell

im like everyone else
no self identity
i am no longer

p.s.i wrote this after a miscarraige and dr gave me antidepressents for a couple months

    Pills for depression can help or they can hinder...prozac is a real dandy! saved me for a shirt time, until i found out what it could do in the long i went!
    I almost died after one day of beware Sandy, beware...find your joy, your happiness and leave behind despair. we all suffer you know...some with diabetes, some with worse things than that, yet we manage to go on!

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!

Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
