How it feels like to be trapped and not being able to express how you feel to even those you love. The feelings of desperation and hopelessness.


In a box, in a bubble

In my own world filled with trouble

And with hate, loneliness,

Tiredness and hopelessness

But what can I do

To stop me from feeling this blue?

No one would understand

Only hold out a helping hand

But that is not enough for me

I need a hug, a saviour please

To keep me from thinking

What would happen if I were sinking

If I just vanished, disappeared

But death is something I deeply fear

Not the end, but the way it is done

The pain, the hurt before you’re gone

And so I still remain,

To the people who know my name

But inside I am hollow

With only self harm to drown my sorrow

And as the pain builds up inside

I try to run and hide

From the truth, from the hurt

From the worries, I am now inert

So at night I pray

Please God; give me a reason to stay.

Very sincere, genuine expression of despair. The words really bring me into the dark hopeless world of the poet.
