I don't understand

There are so many people around me

Yet I feel forsaken.

This room, so radiant

But this looming darkness threatens me.

Self loathing claws its way up my throat

In a silent scream, I drown.

I'm at war with myself

And I'm afraid I'm falling.

They wonder where my smile went

But the dead don't smile, do they?

My heart cries out loud

To take it past the past

But this deadly darkness has engulfed me

And my candle won't burn.

I can fight no more.

Hopeless, I surrender.

I bow my head

And I succumb to the weight of this world.
