THERE ARE THINGS I TELL NO ONE – UGOCHUKWU DAMIAN

Rope;
Dances above my head
Sometimes
It dances around my neck
Telling me to defile gravity

Blade;
How do I cope with anger?
I take a blade
And slice my thigh
Then watch anger slip from my body

Note;
What keeps God busy?
Why is he deaf to my prayers?
I shove a note in his mouth
A suicide note in a page of my bible

Pain;
Night has taken over the day
Pain is the path to the end of the tunnel
Pain has taken over the light

HAVE YOU READ:  GIMME THIS ONE CHANCE. BY ADEGBITE ARINOLA

There are things I tell no one
For I’m told to take my depression to God
Not some stranger or physician

(II)

Here are the things I tell no one

That the rope still dances
Around my neck
High above my head

That the blade
Is stuck between my lips
And blood slips out
Unto a note

That in this part of the tunnel
All I see is pain
And I wish not to go further
For all I’ve seen is pain
