I don’t want to die, I just don’t want to be here anymore. 

Where is here, you ask? 

Here is this mundane life of repetition. 

Wake up, clean up, work, sleep, repeat. 

I don’t want to be here anymore. 

In this neverending pit of numbness, constantly searching for answers. 

Where is here? 

Here is my couch, my bed, or wherever the hell I choose to lay down while writing about my lack of enthusiasm towards life. 

Here is the antidepressants and antipsycotics it takes for me to function like a normal, or should I say programmed, human being. 

Here is the "Because You Watched" section on Netflix. 

Here is the job I tolerate just to make ends meet, knowing it kills me to get ready each morning. 

Here is the empty bottles of wine, vodka, and rum I indulge in on weekends to treat myself, or should I say, numb myself even more. 

Here is the exhaustion, the fatigue, and every feeling that comes with feeling like a burden floating through space. 

Here is the memory of all of my fallen comrades; the ones who were strong enough to make the decision not to physically be here anymore. 

Where is here, you ask?

Here is almost every aspect of my current life. 

I don't want to die, I just don't want to be here anymore.

The Ghost-Bull

Wow...It's crazy how I, earlier, messaged my friend by Messenger on Facebook about the exact feeling as what I had just read. I was never expecting to, randomly, come across a post having anything to do with how I felt earlier in the day. This was deep and powerful, miss--something I can feel from within. With far more views, this needs to be seen.
