I’m on land, both feet on the ground

so why does it feel like I’m drowning

why does it feel like I can’t breathe,

like I can’t talk,

like it’s a nightmare and I’m trying to run away

but I’m always too slow always been too slow

and the monster is rightthere

and I can hear it calling me such awful, hurtful things

that I’ve heard too many times

with a voice that’s too familiar, that used to call me “friend”

and it doesn’t matter if they don’t mean it because it hurts anyway, doesn’t it?

and I’m trying so hard to keep calm, DON’t CrY, I can’t show how weak I am, not here,

and I’m trying to breathe in breathe out calmly so I can saysomethingback but I can’t breathe I can’T

BREATHE at ALL



 

I wish it would just stop

I wish the memories wouldn’t haunt me for months

I wish I wasn’t so weak to petty insults

I wish I could hide my pain

and I wish it didn’t feel like I was drowning
