How I always feel...

I set fire to my body

People walk past

As if they don't see the flames roaring on my skin

 

I stand on the ledge of a building

People walk past

As if they don't hear my desperate cries for help

 

I curl my hands to my face and bawl

People walk past

As if they don't feel the tears hit their arm

 

I make one mistake

People walk past

As if I just ate their young

Thanks! It's a feeling I experience too much too and it's very wrong... I felt this was an easy way of sharing those emotions of invisible...

i understand entirely. And i understand that what you write is you begging for another chacne, begging for help. I do the same. I love this poem.

Thankyou I'm very glad that you can relate to this feeling... I think we all wish we could rewind and have another chance, another go at the monster named life... Or some instruction manual... but sadly there isn't one
