John Hartley Roberts- Now You Are Gone!
Eternally Blessed ❤️ (Dadís death)
A Life Through Borrowed Eyes!
I see you! The Induced Coma!
Letting you in ...
Tormented Inside My Head!
Surely I Would be Better off Dead?
They Donít Care!
Why did you desert me when I needed you the most?
Inside the Brain of the Depressed!
Whose Face is that in the Mirror?
... and The World Went Black!
Crawl Back Under The Stone You Crawled Out From!
Friend - You Just Donít Seem to Care!
Depression: ĎLike a Ripple in the Waterí
A Silent Argument
Give Me Back The Life That My ill Health Stole!
Gone But Not Forgotten!
How Do You Know Itís Your Happy Ever After?
Imagine Your Worries
This Constant Dread
A New Years Eve encounter with an Ex!
People Don't Really Want to Know!
The Separation of the Spirit from the Body!
Confessions of the Heart
Another Layer of Suffered Skin
Layers of Suffered Skin - (Full Version)
You Are Unique & Exceptionally Fine
Depression Sitting in Wait
I Can't Be All The Things You Want Me To Be
A Visit to the Consultant
Life Is As Fragile As A Sheet Of Glass
Errol Green Eyes
A Commuters Dare
I trusted you with all four corners of my heart
Consumed - (A Tale of Bereavement)
To kiss your rosebud lips (2nd Miscarriage)
Its fatherís day what can I sayÖ.
Only One Set of Footprints (Suffered Skin)
Alcohol Consumed her - (My Sister Mary)
Miscarriage - Baby Diandre, gone but not forgotten
Faces: A Journey on the London Tube
I Opened My Eyes
Where is the Justice?
Looking Through Glass Eyes
Aftermath (Part 2): The Image in The Mirror is Not Me.
The Aftermath (Part 1) of Drug Rape
Family a Question of Perception
Who am I
The Illusion of a Rapist
New Years Day
The Relationship Faker
Angels Take Flight
Christmas is a Time
The Black hole of Life
The Invasion of the Tenant
The Buzz in the Fuzz (counselling)
Taking Down the Screen
Separation: The Reflection of Insanity
Tick, tick, tick went the seconds of my life
Making sense of non-sense
To mum I had a dream
THE REFLECTION OF A TORTURED SOUL
I Opened My Eyes
I opened my eyes,
feeling lethargic and numb,
unable to forget what that beast has done.
The world is waiting,
but I never arrive,
still in pyjamas; hair hitched up,
I stay inside.
Hearing cars pass by, and signs of life outside,
they are at a safe distance, as I breathe a sigh.
The strength to get up and inflate my lungs,
is about all I can manage today.
As if on auto-pilot,
in a surelle world,
the life I once knew has gone!
Trapped in a shell of this body I own,
a body my emotions are quick to disown.
Existing inside these flesh & bones
are faint cries of my spirit and its torturous groans.
