Are you blind to my misery,
Or do you choose not to look?
I want to share my story,
But you close me like a book.

I'm screaming as I cry,
But you refuse to hear.
Look away as I die,
Ignore each little tear.

Am I not loud enough?
Is that why you ignore my scream?
My life is tough,
Help me escape this bad dream.

I scream a bit higher.
Please, I need your help!
My circumstances are dire.
I'm losing myself.

But you do not help me,
And I've decided to give up.
Maybe then you'll see.
Ha! That's just my luck.
I wrote this today, my first submission since i got sick. Hope you like it.

I love it! Reminds me of my struggle with SI back in highschool. My friends blew my cuts off as not a big deal (even though I outright told them that they were the reason I was doing this to myself). I love it when honest people who don't even know me can take my feelings and express them in a non-sugar coated poem. You seem like a real person (like not fake) who knows how to express real ideas and like me isn't afraid to speak their mind and say the things that most people are afraid to hear.

Again, don't know you. But thanks, I guess. Please don't call me your "love" I'm in a relationship.

One good thing about people dragging you down/ignoring your pain: it makes you extra sensitive to unspoken pain and the feelings of others, so you can help them even though people failed to help you. My kids will never suffer alone because of what I had to go through as a kid. :)

Exactly!! If people were never horrible to you, you would never know how much it hurts, so you would never learn how to be kind to others. So long as there are still a few good people in the world, it's never hopeless. :)

My life right now. For example; I say I like apples. People start saying how I explicitly DEMANDED a full apple salad. They can't really tell I need professional help on certain subjects either. Not to mention they're fucking blind to the fact they're the ones causing this. YES, saying every aspect of a person is wrong ruins their self esteem. I'm not sure how you could even think that essentially calling me worthless would help me, but surprise, surprise. IT DIDN'T. Thank you for dragging me down to the place I was 5 years ago and completely ruining the therapy my parents put so much money into. Not to mention I can't seem to do anything right lately.

I'm usually not a poetry fan, but this is just amazing ^^ Keep up the good work.

Nah, letting them drag me down would be giving them too much credit. For Pete's sake, they're ADULTS trying to put down a 19-yearold. How pathetic is that? =D

Sometimes the silent scream is the loudest, and the most uncomfortable to hear. That's why people ignore it I think - because they don't know how to react to it or they don't know how it will affect them or they don't know how to help. If a child is crying because its knee is bleeding it's easy to put a plaster (band aid) on it and comfort the child. Someone with Depression (diagnosed or not) does not have a physical wound people can see (especially if they are a cutter who hides the scars, as most do).
