Suffocate

I try to escape the pain, and I reach out for you. You have always been my therapy. I scribble feelings, at the pace, they emerge from my beating heart. I feel the pounding, leave me slowly, as your kindness comforts me. You were the voice, outside the soul, that reflected my own.

I try to escape the pain, and I reach out for you. You were there, broken, yourself. But you were always my therapy. The feelings, choke in my throat and now, nothing comforted me. I suffocate. I suffocate. I suffocate.

I stare blankly, as I slowly recede into the dark world, that I never wanted to see again. To the place, where all my thoughts were only comprised of pain. I was here before, but now, I was alone.

I look, as life frowns at me. “Why can’t I save anyone?”, I sob. “Why can’t I save myself?”, I scream. I was powerless. I was hopeless. I was soulless.

Suffocate,
– Shane
