Probably not one of my better ones, but basically sums up how I feel sometimes.

Why do I feel broken?

Like I’ve fallen beneath,

An ocean of apathy and despair,

Struggling to reach clear air,

And some form of inner peace.

 

Why do I feel lost?

Like I was pushed off the map,

Plunged into darkness to drown,

Left to quietly fall down,

And ensnared in this trap.

 

Why do I feel lonely?

Like there’s nobody here with me,

When there’s people all round,

But I can’t make a sound,

For them to know and see.

 

Why do I feel at all?

When I’m so sick of hurting,

Of spending all night crying,

Of thinking about dying,

Why am I still feeling?

 

What purpose does it serve?

To ache inside and out?

To choke on tears and emotion,

To rot with sadness and doubt?

 

Why can’t I be like a robot?

Steel is my way out anyway,

As I tremble with anxiety,

Every time night kills the day.

 

It all floods out,

Everything hurts,
Tried all the cures,

Nothing works.

 

But you can’t stop feeling,

Until you stop breathing.
