Abilify or not to Abilify*

Having the right to be whole
Fighting depression takes a toll
I now have a choice to choose
What symptoms I’d rather lose

I can be fatigued all day
Or be depressed the other way
Falling asleep at the keyboard
Or shrinking away being abhorred

I’ve decided not to be fatigued
I need a new med(s) to work in league
With what I take so I can be free
From depression that plagues me

Medications. It can have Different side
side affects with others or none at all

Stone 1

I’ve lost the wonder from my vision
All is black and white
I’ve lost the vision from my wonder
Fatigue blinds my sight

The Wall

The ghosts that are all around me
Suck life from my every pore
Trying to get this first stanza out
Before I sink into the floor

The coffee has torn up my stomach
Napping after every line
Hoping to finish this story
Giving new meaning to deadline

Closing my eyes for a moment
Ten minutes later awake
I don’t think it’s going to happen
Thinking finishing a mistake

Don’t come up on me while I write
You’ll run up against the brick beast
It’s better that you read this now
Than being found at the wall deceased

The ones before would warn you
That scaling that wall wasn’t too smart
Instead they dig and torment me
Tiring ghosts that will not depart
