I Don't Understand

Why am I sad

Why do I want to cry


Is it the pain I feel for a friend

Is it the fact that someone died


Why do I fear the monsters

Burning in my head


Drowning me

I can not breathe


I think they want me dead


I hurt so bad

What do I do


It starts to get the best of you


Try and hold on

Don't let go


Like a cancer

Nightmares flow


Drifting on forever it seems


I wish

Let me be


No one understands

And neither do I
