An elixir gone bad,

This cure poisons me

I want it to heal but all it does

Is exacerbate the pain


It convinces me that

Nothing is really wrong

It tells me to keep groping in the dark

Because the light switch is near


It forces me to stay

In this rain because

The sun will come soon and

Everything will be okay


I swear this rope is

Pulling me out of the sea

It’s actually strangling me even though

I promise I’m fine


The anchor is just

A mirage, it’ll disappear

And you’ll be free to swim

So keep struggling


Don’t quit, it tells me

You may be stuck in a maze

But don’t give up because the end is around this corner

I promise
