I've recently started writing in a very different style and this poem is a bit of an experiment. I'd love any feedback that anyone has to give.

i can’t hear can’t think 

can’t breathe

please hold me before i fall apart

before i am gone and there’s nothing else

forever

 

can’t see can’t feel can’t be

without you

 

i don’t plan

i just go

just go

 

pull me slowly

drag me screaming

hurt me softly

kill me neatly

 

death is not beautiful

like we are beautiful

death is not truthful

like we are truthful

 

death doesn’t hurt

the way we hurt

the way we are numb

 

lift me up

hold me touch me

don’t be with me

be with me

I’m hiding behind

this facade that everything is okay

that nothing is okay

that the world is okay
