Breathing In Fumes...

Hee hee! I'm so excited about this new community! Not that I'm biased or anything because the creator and moderator is one of my best friends. So for my first entry I will post one of my poems that I wrote a long time ago. It's one of my favorites because I think it captures depression really well which I still struggle with from time to time.

Breathing In Fumes

I dance to the music in my mind
my hands weave incense like a gypsy
darkness all around
trapped in my box
my own private place
sometimes i sleep and never want to wake
the door is locked and concealed behind the witch hazel
I have my bed, my doll, my dreams
the only arms that hold me are my own
and the smoke rises from the red hot floor
my pictures come alive on the wall
and look like an old ten cent movie reel
I bow my head and sing my song
until my eyes grow dark and holy
I dance to the music in my mind
