Authored by Susan Logan
Full Color on White paper
This book is a collection of poetry covering various topics which affect society we live in today. Such topics as addictions and mental health are included which are perhaps topics you perhaps have never thought about or come across before.
The aim of this book is to show that others have went through similar issues. I am not a counselor or a professional but through personal experiences I hope that when reading my poetry you can connect with the emotions portrayed.

Inside my mind is like a play park,
Although it’s far from fun.
Uncontrollable mood swings
That make me feel sick.
One minute I’m happy and contented
The next I’m acting like a spoilt prick.
Lower than the ground I walk on
Feeling like a piece of rubbish to be thrown in the bin.
Why oh why can’t I stop this
Why does depression have to win?
Then there is the roundabout
Spinning all the time
Never a chance to catch my breath
To turn the other way.
Going in the one depressing direction
And no one around me knows what is safe to say.
Don’t get me started on the see-saw
It explains itself!
And the slide probably the most important
Because I know that’s my biggest battle of all.
The taste of alcohol is like fuel to my mind
It takes me on that slippery slide
Allowing me to do things I can’t rewind.
So you see for many people a park is full of fun
But for a person with depression it brings me none!

As I wade into the water all my troubles wash away
All the things you said to me
All the promises to make me stay
All the lies you told me
All the times you got your own way.
As I wade into the water remember it was you who drove me away
Stumbled across this image today when looking for a picture to do as a tattoo..think it’s beautiful
Thoughts flood my mind
Horrid thoughts I want to rewind.
Thoughts of death
Thoughts of being here no more
My life a culmination of one big bore.
Planning, thinking, choosing what way
Dare not tell anyone
I know what they will say.
Thoughts of wanting to hide
Hide away so safety is on others side
I don’t trust myself to be around you
I’m scared of what my mind wants me to do.
You don’t need anymore pain
You’ve had enough.
I know you love me
But living with me has to be tough.
The mood swings, unpredictable highs
The staying in bed just wanting to cry.
You have been so patient and so kind
It is thoughts of you that I now
Try to flood my mind.
I sit here in the darkness trying to make sense off today,
You wished me happy birthday, then God took you away.
No chance to say thank you or invite you for a drink
Gone in a second before I had a chance to blink.
It’s as if you knew what was coming, as if you saw the signs.
You had so much to live for, so much still to do
Now I’m left wondering why did God have to pick you?
