Okay so nothing really happened today, I've just been thinking about the last dew days - was a little overwhelmed and bordeline doing something stupid, but I'm fine now x I've decided to share a #poem of mine I wrote about 2 years ago, and is till a favourite of mine to this day. Feel free to comment your opinions. ♡Love, C ♡ (Scroll down / across to read) ●•●•●
Confined to my mind,
Thoughts and dreams lay scattered in the graveyard that is my soul.
Some days the noise is to loud - my head is to crowded,
Some days I feel everything at once.
Most days the noise is deafening silent - my head a dying desert,
Most days I feel nothing at all.
My mind never sleeps,
My mind never settles,
An upbeat rhythm that roars painfully,
Till I'm near insanity.
Spotlight, shadows.... They come in waves,
Strong surges of emotions tipped frothy white,
Waves that knock me down,
Pulling me to my grave.
The waves do not leave me alone,
Dragging me under,
Burning my lungs and stinging my eyes,
My only friends are the shadows that dance.
The light fades,
I fall deeper and deeper,
Am I drowning or suffocating?
One is dry and one is wet , either way I choke by the fingers squeezing my fragile heart.
I feel like I am dying,
Drowning in the abyss of life,
Dragged down by the anchor of my past.
Emotional and Emotionless,
A dying flame in the sea,
Rocking back and forth,
Slowly dying out... I don't know what's worse,
Drowning beneath the waves,
Or dying from thirst...
