for the times when you add layers of apathy around your heart, scared of the hurt that might ensue if you don't -
for the times when you don't act in the moment and overthink certain situations and then noticing too late that the moment is gone -
for the times when you wish you can just let go and be - have the opportunity to love and be loved, but your hesitation leaves you ...empty

save me from this "sanity"

Save me
from this
sanity

that cages
me
and suffocates
my
struggling soul

Free me
from this
sanity

that holds
me
down
pins me
into
empitiness
numbness:
a lonely
hole

Save me
from this
reason
that makes me
stop
and limit love
forcing self

to only dream
about being
whole

Free me
from this
rationality

that shuts
me up
and shuts
me down
and places
upon my head
the crown


of
apathy

it surrounds
me
as i look around
and
it astounds
me
that down
in this
dark pit
of incredulous pain
the walls
are covered
in thick hard
apathy
that once were bubbles
supposed to protect me
but now
instead,
stifles my breath
and these tears
i shed
shall not ever
free me from this


apathy.


sanity.

and there i'll sit
and stare
into
apathy
and
watch it

stare back at

me.
