1. Feeling Blue by Susan Williams

you say we should shake it off
you say get over it
you say it’s not good for us
you say it makes a bad situation worse
I think we should enjoy the mood
what’s wrong with feeling blue
gives us time to be melancholy
and think sad soulful thoughts
tomorrow we can dance in the rain
but today we can watch it rain
and trace its lonely tears
down our windowpane

Whenever you’re sad,
or feeling blue,
Just call on me.
I’ll be here for you.

Whenever you’re happy,
or feeling sad,
Just call on me.
You are going to be glad that you had.

‘Cause I’m gonna be there
with open arms.
I’m going to be there
to bear your arms.

I may be young,
or tiny like a bug,
but when you’re sad
I swear to God,
I give the biggest hugs.

So when you’re lonely
or just plain blue,
Just think of me,
or this poem,
And I’ll come to you.

3. Taking It Day By Day by Vincent Ramos

Each day I live, the pain consumes
What little sanity I have bloomed,
Like walking in a cloud of fog
Falling down, sinking into smog.

Life just seems grim.
I think on a whim.
Interest lost in everything I do,
But what a life, who really knew?

Depressed to a fault, that’s all I see.
Death just seems like the only way for me.
A waste of time I feel I am,
But that’s its nature, a full mind-jam.

I try and try to ease the pain,
A fallen effort with no gain.
Thoughts begin to eat away,
Makes me want to end it today.

Uncomfortable around others for the way I feel.
I pray and wish this all wasn’t real.
Life just seems more like a prison,
Caged, alone, an abomination risen.

No one could ever understand
Why I would want my death sooner than planned.
It’s not something I want for me,
But to end my suffering this is what has to be.

So I write this all as I fall from grace.
Down to this place, some barren waste.
I know not how much longer I will last,
But all I can do is pray that this will just pass.

4. When You’re Feeling Blue by Candice Freeman

when you’re feeling blue
and there’s no one for you to talk to
what do you do
do you just stay there and break down and cry
or just start getting high
you wonder what life has in store for you
because you haven’t got a clue
but still when you’re feeling blue
and there’s no one for you to talk to
what do you do
do you scream and shout until someone hears
or do you simply deal with it by cutting your hand
so what do you do when you’re feeling blue
and there’s no one for you to talk to

5. Feeling Blue by Anonymous

I suppose it’s hard for some to understand.
This is not the way that I had planned.
I don’t know how I’ve let myself get this way,
And sometimes feel like calling it a day.
But then I think of those who are close to my heart.
Ending it all would probably tear them apart,
So while I’m thinking of my dread,
I’ll try and sort out this mess in my head.
Then if I find I still can’t cope,
There’s nothing more I can do than pray and hope
That everything will turn out right for me,
And someday I’ll be as happy as I can possibly be.

6. The Daily Battle by Anonymous

It is the darkest, deepest place one can travel to alone,
A solo journey filled with struggles and groans.
Every day is a new battle against the same foe,
But the enemy fights back with psychological blows.
It creeps up on you in your most vulnerable state,
Especially when there’s no one around who can relate.
Thoughts in your mind begin to swirl and swell,
Which drag you into your own subconscious hell.
Figments and entities from your past
Serve as the pain, which you can’t outlast.
Finally sleep always comes as a welcomed friend,
But it the morning the ceaseless battle begins yet again.

7. Midnight Blue by Elena Goldenberg

The night is going to be long
I’m feeling blue and washed along
The coast of someone’s happy dreams
A life exactly what it seems
I’m feeling black as midnight thoughts
Of someone ill or someone lost
The night is going to be true
An honest blow of midnight blue
The day forsaken, nights a mess
And spleen puts on a fancy dress
I’m feeling sad and have no clue
How one moults back from such a hue.

8. Blue Suicide by Tiara Neal

As blank as a board.

As long as that mile.

As lifeless as the child.

Who the theropist had filed.

Didnt seem to bad.

She said she didnt cut herself.

But it was so her aunt wouldnt get mad.

While trying to reach out for help.

She wanted to change.

For her friend who delt with her pain.

Knowing she has to do this.

Wishing for his kiss.

Not knowing she is clueless.

What is the right thing.

Am I doing it right.

Am I making the right change.

Not cutting at night.

Getting rid of her blades.

Looking up rubberbands.

She still feels shes in that cage.

Filled with nothing but cants.

Wanting him to call.

But she made that stupid mistake.

Walking down the hall.

Building up her sake.

Feeling hes not there.

Even when he says I Love You.

Thinking you cared.

And again not having a clue.

Why you were there.

And I’m still feeling blue.

9. Early Morning Blues by Carolyn Sears

Early morning blues quickly consume
Without warning
It feels my heart
It feels my spirit
With broken dreams
Capturing my mind in a
Without reason, without
A word that causes the
Sun to shine..
Blinded eyes, I could not
A broken spirit to wander
Into the darken shadows
Without a destination..

10. Using Your Blues by Anonymous

Should you choose
to let the blue’s
consume you,
life’s spirit shall you lose.

Yet if you choose,
to use the blue’s
for inspiration,
you shall remove,
them from there grooves,
and then only the mind doctors,
will lose.
