The Suicidal Moth

Once there was a moth that flew up to Doctor John
He said I'm depressed, I'm a suicidal one"
 Doc John said, "I'm no shrink," 
"Why stop here do you think?"
He said, "Well, I had to, because the light was on!"

Life moves on and I stand still
So many promises I need to fulfill
Am I happy I don't know
Round in circles here I go
It's like crawling slowly up a hill

Mediocre Man

There once was a man that was lackluster
Who's life was one giant cluster
Writes a suicide note
He slits his throat
Blank stares are all his family can muster

Poem Details | by Sean Fahrnebruch |

To die before you die is worse then death itself.
Time doesn’t stop as you are sprung backwards.
Now you have to climb forward
Desperately yearning to revert to your normal self.
Desperately wanting something to spring you back to where you were, happy.

Eight Years

It’s been eight years, and it still feels the same
As it was then, I seem to have no aim
                            Peer pressure
                            That of a fresher
Searching for my own claim to fame.

Cola Slurpees For the Soul

A bad day at the 7-11
The cola slurpee's not working again!
I don't want cherry,
Grape, or strawberry - 
Only cola gives me that peace-like zen!

Lady of Looe

There was an old lady of Looe,
who painted a toilet in glue,
and it drove her insane
as she stuck to the drain,
inhaling the smell of her poo.

For PD's contest (old poem)

Humour Can Cover Up Sadness

Humour is sometimes used to cover up sadness To deal with events that interfere with our gladness Our body's defence To protect us against Depression when it bombards us with blackness © Jack Ellison 2015

The Mangrove Forest of Shundarban

There is a forest named Shundarban, 
It's not similar to the forest of Bandarban
It's famous for Royal Bengal Tiger, 
It's also famous for deer
It's time to save our Shundarban.

A Child of Nine

When I was a child of nine
I thought I had all the time
Time to live and be happy
Time to fish with my pappy
But death had crossed the line

Capitol Offense

The White House is on a great lot
It's Washington's drive to it spot
But guards only train
That terror's to contain
So mentally ill there get shot

Letter To Home

When I look around..I See that It's abound
 Whatever it Is..It wants Peace 
 Peace of mind..An everlastingly Bind
 No racketeering..It isn't Blind
 It Sees More than what you see.

Life On the Corner

There once was this girl who was pretty
Who resided in New York City
Got mugged Friday night
Weak attempt at a fight
Life as a harlot is such a pity

I hiked down to my old fish'in hole
one BIG "Rainbow Trout" was my goal
got nothing but snags
lost a whole jar of eggs
and into the lake went my pole

I Am a Giant

I am a giant; Piercing the clouds
Entering orbit, outsizing the sounds
I am a giant, high so high,
Everytime i begin to fly
I'm off on the run, off on the run,
An average man so close to the sun.
Am i a giant or just living a lie?
An average man, high, so high.

I See

When i look into your eyes
I see nothing but lies
Have you any clue?
The pain you have put me through
My heart beats its last beat and slowly dies

May I humbly say a word
Why you make my life so hard
Though I pray for your mercy
Never you send returns I see
Is it not quite unfair my Lord

The Perils of Internet Dating

There once was a granny called Vi,

With dentures, peg leg and glass eye.

Many photos I’d seen,

And expected a teen -

Who says that the camera can’t lie?

Winter Gray

This winter has brought unrelenting gray
Unlit gray sky is all I've seen for days
Gray snow a relief
From gray rain's dank grief
Hurry, springtime - make the gray go away!

Oh, the team that has brought so many cheers

            to the fans who followed them o'er the years

Pandemic Manic Depression

Lovely Jen a poetic romantic
A mask she hated with the pandemic
Rhinestone, pearls, a smiley face
She decorated the lace
Her boyfriend though she was kind of manic.

Loves Revenge

Love is so sweet
 when two people meet
 when an option of divorce
 comes in by force
 that love is in defeat
