  1. https://www.britannica.com/art/choka I assumed no one would have heard of a Choka poem. But it is a sub genre of a Haiku, so I went with the more well-known term. And yes, it doesn't have the extra seven syllable line. However, the poem was over at that point. There was no point in continuing it.
  2. I. The Dark Waters sing ‘oh restless sailor, we’ve met before, haven’t we, this time though, I fear for you’ the Wind answers back with a howl that rocks the ship, ‘too late to turn back’ the vessel begs for relief as Water coats it it's a Moonless night above not even the Gods see the end of Her story, She vanishes quick beneath the deadly waters and the Sea rolls on. ****** Poetry is the only way I can get through the day, I thought sharing them might help.
  3. Hello everyone, new member here. I've struggled with depression my entire life, I'm twenty-eight. I'm one of those cases who has never been happy in his life. Where nothing in my life brings me any joy, those examples that make me less sad are just distractions of how much pain I'm in. I tried ******* myself back in 2018, and recently the depression has gotten to the point where it rivals how I felt back then. Unlike then, there are a few things keeping me from trying it. In addition to depression I also have Schizophrenia, so I have Schizoaffective Disorder. This was especially a problem growing up as the hallucinations would ravage my mind and day-to-day life, but no one would believe me that something was wrong. At the same time, I was being abused physically and emotionally by someone in my family. Not to mention the hazing from school. So it felt like I had nowhere to turn to. I tried ******* myself several times back then. One of the reasons I cannot have anything around my neck is because I had a botched hanging incident. Luckily, I work with someone who goes through many of the same problems that I do. We can joke about our depression and the pain we are in. It makes things more manageable. Self-harm has been an issue for me in the past. The numbness I feel gets to me and I need to be able to feel something, even if it's pain. The thing is, it often times doesn't do the trick. That's a brief overview of myself. Thanks for having me. I look forward to talking to everyone, maybe we can make each others lives a little bit easier.
