The Monster In AppleBloom

The Beginning

It started with a feeling of helplessness, of hopelessness. As Apple Bloom and the Cutie Mark Crusaders left their fillyhood and became teenagers, they all eventually got their cutie marks.

Sweetie Belle got a musical note for her talent of singing. Scootaloo a scooter and helmet for her talent on her scooter, and Apple Bloom got a cutiemark that nobody would’ve expected....

An open scroll and quill.

Secretly, Apple Bloom had started writing poetry to get out her emotions. At the age of twelve she lay in her bed feeling depressed and thinking about death.

Her friends noticed the change that had started in her. She was gradually spending more and more time away from them, and when she was with them, she didn’t seem all there.

Apple Bloom continued to spiral downward. Every year she seemed to get worse, but she refused to talk to anyone about it. She feared she was going mad.


My heart feels like it's breaking,
My spirit hangs by a thread.
Though the outside of me is still living,
The inside of me is quite dead.

Agony, oh agony, my feelings overwhelm me.
I feel as if I can't go on.
The future's not pleasant I see.

I feel so alone, I'm so full of pain,
Can anyone help me?
I always seem to lose much more than I gain,
What a cruel world I live in.
Is this the way that life always must be?

Agony, oh agony, my feelings overwhelm me.
I feel as if I can't go on.
The future's not pleasant I see.
And I have the feeling it never will be.

Apple Bloom looked down at her newest poem and shivered. She had a great life, wonderful friends, so why did she feel so horrible all the time?

“What’s happening to me?”

Author's Notes:

I don't know if anyone has posted a story about mental illness on this site before, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I don't mean the kind that makes you a crazy killer either.
