Hungry to Drive
So many writers impact the world with such force,
As if they attacked their readers without any remorse,
Their words are smart, sharp, and always so clever,
lightning in a bottle or a star burning forever,
I only wish I can be blinded by such a light,
Then maybe I could take myself on with more of a bite.
I would shut out the fact that I’m halfway dead!
I would shut out the fact that I live in my bed!
I would shut out the fact that I’m not well read!
I would shut out the fact that I’m cracked in the head!
To better myself would be but the dream,
A start to that would be some self esteem,
I know I can do it, it just takes some time,
A little practice and a bit of a climb,
Ill show the world that I can be more than this,
And someday Ill forget my stupid dark abyss,

Rising, whipping, and twirling far above in the air,
Focused and fearless all without one care,
See me scratch and scribble with much ferocity,
Imagination running loose, just trying to catch up to my curiosity,
The wind slows down and the air goes stale,
I suck in no breath as all seems to fail,
I'm falling from the clouds now normal, but can not fly,
Levels are stable this is the death of the manic high.

One Night, One Mind, One Voices
Too many voices telling me what to do.
Each have the same voice and speak in same volume.
They tell me different things and show me different outcomes.
If I listen carefully enough the voices are from one.
My wall shelters me from the storm some days.
Other days the wall is cracked and water drips in
A cool draft chills my hovel and my fire grows damp
I can’t sleep anyways, the voice is too loud.
Tomorrow always comes, yesterday always passes
I just don’t see those days on the horizon, not anymore.
Each week is a year and each year is an eternity
And when the voice speaks, all time stands still.
I am no longer equipped to take  this journey
I am tired and have grown weak over time
Each hill becomes another daunting mountain
The voice whispers me to stop when I am trying to persevere

Not Medicated
You always seemed the pleasant type.
Bringing me wonderful gifts,
Being a great friend.
You smile with the sincerest of gazes
I trust you,
Though I know I shouldn't.
Those who truly care,
Say that you're ruining my life.
They say that you're a wolf in sheep's clothing.
A mask is what they see,
You never show me your real face.
But, I've never wanted to see it.
I don't care what they say,
I never want you to leave me.
You've been there for me when no one else was.
You've gotten me through the harshest of times,
If you killed me, I'd understand.
It wasn't personal, right?

No More Refills
A soft glow from the laptop burns in my room
Another night, another day has passed.
Snip go the scissors that cuts one more inch from my life.
Aging is the ultimate incurable disease.
Depression when I’m awake
Nightmares when I’m asleep
Drowning in the amount of fucks I give
Sleep is life’s iron lung.
Ever drive blind?
It’s a terrifying experience that I don’t wish upon anyone
Driving would imply movement though.
“Life’s Like a Highway” but I’m not in a car

The Systematic Breakdown of My Soul
Another hour goes by, no sleep tonight.
Here’s why:
I really feel like starving myself of my manic highs are like slicing off a piece of me,
But instead of that piece vanishing into the aether,
It’s instead forcing me to watch getting sliced up.
And over,
And over again.
In 1080p.
Not staying up to 6 AM channeling my creativity is torture.
A mental floor exercise that i was ill prepared for,
I fractured my ankle, Kerri Strugg style, and it’s fucking me up royally.
i can’t stand it.
Something is going to break and when it does i hope i dont step in that broken glass.

Depression Has a Bottle Opener
I go drinking with my buds, Depression and Suicidal Thoughts.
They are more like those neighbors that have the key to my apartment
They raid my fridge and make a mess of my living room
Leaving the tv on all night...wracking up my electric bill.
So not buds, just assholes.
Back to my story.
They like to show me a good time,
Get me hooked up with Dark Ideas and Low Feelings.
A pair of real fine people
We party and i get wasted.
I end up crashing at Depression’s house.
Life doesn’t like me hanging out with this crowd.
He lectures me all the time, that it’s not good for my health.
That these guys are just using me.
Life doesn’t understand
Me and Depression have a connection.
So I end up driving home.
I can’t really think straight, can’t even see all that well.
I really shouldn’t be driving and I swerve off the road.
I emerge from my wreck a bit keener of the road signs
Maybe Life is onto something.

Scratch-Rabbit's Profile Picture
Birthplace of Vendetta's Rise!
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I grew up in New England. I fell in love with fantasy through old TSR books, Dungeon and Dragons, and Willow. That love has stuck with me throughout my life, even when I was serving in Iraq as a US soldier. In the army I was the huge nerd that ran the tabletops every weekend morning.

Since I've been discharged, I've been struggling with deep depression that has only been kept at bay for my love to write. I used poetry as a mean of therapy and my novel as a tool to show myself that there's alway something over the horizon to fight for.
