Ward, a poem by Drem

December 2, 2013

“Four walls,




collapsing one

on top of itself


and over.

Get out.

Get me out.

Start over.

Dripping tears.

Spit from screaming mouths.


the bodies

on top of themselves



No floors though.

All are falling.

Get out.

Get me out.

Start over.

Dripping tears aren’t mine.

Time goes

and looks funny


We’re all still falling

and time never moves

in the direction

I wish it would.


back, back,


thoughts like this were thought of.

Before I made this real.

Before she called the cops.

Before I didn’t take enough pills.

Before I said “no” after he said “yes”.

Dripping dripping


from drugged up mouths

that can’t talk or eat


They don’t speak

and can’t say “help”.

Plastic doors

and plastic walls

and no windows

and plastic floors

and plastic beds.

My plastic bed.

No hot water.

I’m cold.

Get out.

Get me out.

Start over.

  1. This pulled on my heart strings. I cannot find the words I want to say that express what it is that I am feeling right now. And you know me long enough to know that hardly ever happens. I feel so sadden and angry at the same time that this happened to you when it should have never happened. It angers me to so much that what the person you described in the poem can do such horrible things to someone as wonderful as you are.
    I really cannot explain what it is I am feeling but it proves the weight you put to words.

    1. It made me sad typing it up. This whole series i’m up to now in my journal, the whole time period, I don’t like. I left out a lot of decent work.. better work than this. It was too emotionally hard for me.

      1. It’s okay. You post it if you if you feel you can. I have work I’m not sure if I want to look at ever again. But even though this was emotionally hard for you, only proves what I have said about you for a long time. You are one of the strongest women I know.

    1. This one was hard. I think I said that to two other people. But, this one was the hardest to put up to far. I wasn’t going to. It was a nightmare. And typing it up forced me to relive it.

  2. I haven’t! I pretty much just wake up. Post. Go back to bed 😛
    But, I know the song and I will tell myself that.
    Do you watch the Walking Dead?
    There’s this girl who writes JSS on stuff. It stands for Just Survive Somehow.
    I’m going to get a tattoo of that. I need to just survive somehow…
    I need to be reminded because I so often forget.
