Here I am, in an open sea.
The waves are crashing over me.
I’m gasping for a breath of air—something to rid me of insanity.
I’m drowning. I’m all alone.
I’m on my own. I’ll die alone.
I blink back tears from dripping eyes,
Wishing emotions could be paralyzed.
I feel too much or not at all, wondering where I’ll go or if I’ll belong.
I’m dead inside. I feel so small.
Don’t want to feel, no—not at all.
So, I give up, couldn’t push through.
I did what I had to do.
You don’t agree? I know you won’t. But I don’t care—not anymore.
I guess that’s it. Didn’t take long at all.
I lost myself and took my fall.
Ded. Tears I shed
