In Order To Cope

I can feel him pulling away,
His heart no longer mine.
I feel like such a fool,
How did I miss the sign?

"Battered & Bruised,"
My poor heart stumbles;
Hours and hours of tears,
My thoughts are all in jumbles.

The further he pulls,
The deeper I seem to sink;
I am lost in a DARK depression,
With not enough energy to blink.

I miss the way it was,
Those memories now so vague;
These days you make me feel,
As if I have the bloody Plague!

We barely ever "touch" or talk,
You're hardly ever home;
There is such a distance between us,
Have you decided to roam?

This depression is crippling me,
It's stolen almost all of my "hope";
I take my "medication" daily,
Just in order to cope!

I can identify with having to drink medication. I know it's not the best things but like you said we sometimes need it to cope.

I know it's not a "funny" topic but this does seem to hint at a bit of "human" humor.... Rhyme very strong... and may be the reason it sounds a little humorous to me... There's a book of poems, Take Heart by Molly Peacock, that you might find interesting. Peacock is considered one of the "new Formalists" in the 20th-21st century... really uses rhyme in interesting ways... Your poem works on many levels, very good read.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED READING YOUR WORK i KNEW THAT IT CAME FROM DEEP INSIDE YOU. AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, YOU HAVE A GIFT THAT IS AWESOME AND I TRULEY BELIEVE THAT IF YOU CONTINUE TO WRITE, EVEN WHEN THE STRUGGLES ARE PULLING YOU DOWN, YOU WILL SOON BECOME THE BEST FRIEND YOU HAVE TO YOURSELF. i AM SO GLAD YOU ARE BACK. READ MY POEM"WHAT IS REVENGE" IT MIGHT JUST BE SOMETHING THAT DRIVES YOU LIKE IT HAS ME. ED WILLARD
