Array ( [sid] => 128106 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Helpless [time] => 2006-11-12 11:18:35 [hometext] => not meant for little eyes, may be disturbing to some readers [bodytext] => How do you help the helpless?
Donít bother, itís hopeless.

Once I saw crimson streams
I learned to stifle my screams.

Darkness camouflaged with a smile,
A habit I know theyíll think vile.

My own secret, invigorating escape;
A deadly addiction takes shape.

Itís easy to hide when youíre already forgotten,
When nobody wants you, youíre the apple thatís rotten.

Nobody ever saw how deep it was when I cried,
Tears can be easily concealed if youíre on the outside.

A child left alone feeling forsaken
Is now all grown up and left shaken.

The older I get my heart becomes disgustingly clad,
This overwhelming urge is getting so bad.

To lose all the breathe and color of life,
I can end it now with the blade of this knife.

Close my eyes as the pain diminishes,
Only moments now until life my finishes.

How do you help the helpless?
Donít bother, itís hopeless.

Darkness camouflaged with a smile,
A habit I know theyíll think vile.

A deadly addiction takes shape.

Itís easy to hide when youíre already forgotten,
When nobody wants you, youíre the apple thatís rotten.

I can end it now with the blade of this knife.

Close my eyes as the pain diminishes,
Only moments now until life my finishes.

The rawness of the emotion in this has helped me today as I recall a friend whose own inner struggle overtook them. And even tho it was over 25 years ago I still struggle to understand.....so thank you this has strangely helped.

You definately captured some of the general aspects to this painful but strangley numbing habit. I felt it.
