My Chemical Romance Poem by Lee Degnan

My Chemical Romance

Rating: 5.0

I wanted to tell you
how it is that I love you
it used to be so easy
I'd pick up a pen
and let the words flow in
choosing the right ones so freely

But then I'd let someone
talk me into destruction
of all thinking and feeling
Just once a day this pill
which, at times, makes me ill
supresses... well, pretty much anything

Now it seems like every day
feels strangely the same in every way
like lifeless circles of day and night
They treat me for depression
by drugging my brain into submission
yet somehow, I'm not a zombie... right?

Forgive me for my senseless rambling
trying to keep my brain from scrambling
A battle I very much seem to be losing
There was something I had to tell you
but what that was, I have no clue...
Hmmm... I think I need a nap.

A harrowing tale well told. Brims with frustration. Patrick

Strikes a chord with many of us, I'm sure. And we can't be sure what the cure is or even what the cause of the problem is, as our world just gets more and more toxic...-chuck

I hope that this is just your muse speaking, Lee? Frustrations and thwarted dreams lead many to despair, but a chemical romance...nah! I find that the tried and tested method of standing on top of a hill and shouting (or screaming would be more fitting for the fairer sex) helps a lot...but then I lost my voice once, and needed medication :) Great expression of a modern malady. Keep have friends! jack :)

This is excellent lee. You've really captured the 'not quite with it' quality that these so called 'legitimate' drugs induce. (And it's amazing how many are prescribed each year too) . I gather you've stopped taking them - otherwise you couldn't have written this. 'Lifeless circles of day and night' is great, as is your conclusion. Good strong penning. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
