Sadness, depression /
Behind the smile that's painted on her face,
Remains a girl, who tries so hard to breathe;
Encumbered by the feeling of disgrace
And ev'rything that hasn't been achieved.
The burdens of anxiety are blind,
Harassing ev'ry step she takes alone.
Loud, are the voices, screaming in her mind,
Extinguishing her hopes to solid stone.
Surrounded by these memories of hate,
Sarcasim is her only way to cope.
Degraded by a worthless mental state
And left alone to gather up her hope.
You see, these thoughts that linger in my mind,
Still leaves me breathless
Cassie, wow! Mixing an acrostic with a sonnet, absolutely wonderful! This is a sad write but one to be celebrated for your beautiful writing abilities. Well done-
Cassie...this is fab! Oh my I am in awe of your sonnet writing skill. Wow, this is amazing, I like it very much. Straight into faves.
Thank you so much
Cassie, You wrote about something which has become a part of our daily life.
Call it anxiety, stress, depression or darkness they all are the same.
I just hope and pray that for whomsoever you have written it find the way out of it.
Good to see it is nominated.
Thank you so much. I have anxiety/panic attacks, which is what this is about. Writing is my way of coping. Thank you again for your support!
Kasie you have gone and done it now.. seems that finished me off!!!
Thank you, you have helped so much!

This one is close to home for me, I really relate to this one. I'm not completely learned on the different types of poem styles out there, but this really resonated and I loved it!
