Scream

When I cannot speak the words
I’m screaming in my mind,
I’m wondering if you can
see them in my eyes.

  1. Hi, Thank you for the like on my review about ‘Rosie the African Elephant’ last week. I like this short poem, actually very powerful. I love the fact that writing has become a therapy for you. I understand the need to find something as a therapy, suffering from depression and anxiety myself. Keep it up :)!

  2. I sometimes have experienced these feelings. Strong feelings that I feel I have to shove deep down inside. People would not understand nor would they want to know the strong emotions I have. I think people are too busy or anxious to be able to awknowledge my strong emotions. Then I channel these into my writing whatever form it is, my blogs, my book, Twitter. You`ve done a very good job in this post in telling people they`re not alone. Well done!!

  3. Hey! I looked everywhere for a way to contact you privately but found nothing so I’ll say it here- I’m only halfway through your book Just Breathe and I’m obsessed. I was going to wait until I finished all three to say anything but I can’t because I’m that into it and you deserve to know 🙂

  4. When I can’t get people to listen,
    I go out in the back field
    and scream baneful songs
    at the sky gods,

    who sometimes
    clock me in the face
    with telekinetic
    rays

    Oh well, nobody really listens.

    Bless you dear.
