The tunnel is caving in

It was bright

But now

It’s darkening

Darker, darker, darker

What has happened?

What went wrong?

Everything was fine

Everything was going right

It ended

What happened?

Why’d it start again?

Things were fantastic

The demons left

The thoughts went away

Routines went back to normal

Sleep was found again

Eating right

It was great

No more negativity ever set in

But now

It’s bad again

Maybe almost worse than before

Not wanting to, but pushing people away

Wanting them near, but yet so far

What is happening?

Why’d you have to come back?

Life was so perfect

Now it’s hell again

Loved it, now it’s hated
Feeling degraded

Feelings of torture

Why can’t the thoughts be pure?



Why does life have to be such a blur?

Wanting to tell someone, but scared of rejection

Feelings of self pity

Words of common

“It will be okay”

“You just want attention”

“It’s all in your head”

Can’t they understand this being they’re talking to is practically dead?
