Drowning

carrying this burden around
a morbid chill in the air
i tell myself ill be fine
if only i just didnt care

no way to rid myself
cut the skin and bleed it out
lying in a weakened state
i find myself having doubts

and i tell myself anything
anything to ease the pain
the horror of the unknown
nowhere to lay the blame

no one seems to get it
no one can lend a hand
how could anyone help
with a sickness i dont understand

so alone in this
anorexia my only friend
Ill get more attention this way
nature finds balance in the end

cynicism overcomes motivation
sleep cannot numb the pain
all my thoughts lead to nothing
slow and steady i go insane

a universe in motion
sends me spiraling down
i gasp for air once more
and in my sadness i drown

(Lyrics: Jacob Willey)

  • This must be a poem that many can relate too, and would remember for that reason :)29 Jun 2012 by

  • "a universe in motion sends me spiraling down i gasp for air once more and in my sadness i drown" If able to feel the universe I think the spiraling should change direction.Maybe could feel energy flow even when swimming deep in sadness.
