LIFE AS I SEE IT

LIFE AS
I SEE IT
LIFE IS A BETTER SWEET PILL
I AM FORCED TO TAKE AGAINST MY WILL
EVERYONE TRYING TO PULL ME
BACK INTO SO “CALLED REALITY” WHY?
I ASK, WHAT DOES IT HOLD?
DON’T THEY SEE I HAVE NOTHING, I AM SO
COLD.
MY VEINS HAVE NO HEAT PUMPING THROUGH
MY DEPRESSION MAKES EVERYTHING A
SHADED HUE.
IN MY HEART I HAVE NO LAUGHTER, JOY, OR LOVE. I HAVE PRAYED, BUT THERE ARE NO ANSWERS FROM ABOVE.
MY REALITY IS NOT LIKE OTHER PEOPLE SEEM TO BE. SILENT SCREAMING INSIDE OF ME, CONSTANT FEELINGS OF MISERY, JUST WANT TO WITHDRAW INTO MY OWN. LITTLE SAFE HVEN, JUST TO BE LEFT ALONE, AND HAVE PEOPLE REALIZE I AM NOT WORTH SAVING.
SO PLEASE DON’T SAVE ME, I DON’T WANT TO COME BACK TO YOUR
REALITY.
