Why does this happen to me?
All at once
I’m in so much pain.
I ebb and flow
Melting into a pool of my own sorrow
I want to wallow away from these people.
Physically I am with my best friends
But emotionally I am alone in a dark, enclosed space
A black veil seeps into my body
I died today at 19
The rest of my years will remain to plague me
A repeat of crests and plummeting troughs
I'm walking through shallow water
but the next step is a drop off
I’m crippled and can’t fight the sinking,
In less than a second
I've been dragged from clear, shiny waters
To where light never reaches
Lungs filled to the brim with sickness
You acknowledge my eyes are vacant
but you’re afraid to look into them
How blinded by perception.
You don’t know I’m a corpse
I am Empty
Look at me.
