Darkshard's poems.
« on: April 23, 2015, 12:25:41 AM »
A collection of my poetry

"Keep breathing."

Keep Breathing.
Thatís what they tell you.
Youíre alive, thatís what matters.
They say again and again.
But they donít understand do they?
Just breathing to stay alive isnít enough.
Just staying alive isnít enough.
Whatís the point when you arenít living?
When you try to explain this,
When you try to ask for their help to live.
They just shrug and say ďyouíre alive.Ē

It isnít enough that I am alive and breathing.
It isnít enough that I am on basic a level, functional.
Iím stuck on autopilot, itís the only way I can keep on.
Cos when when I went to them and asked for helpÖ
They turned away saying that the situation is fine as is.
Keep breathing they said, cos youíre alive.
But I donít know if I am.
I donít know if I can keep breathing for much longer.

The urge to scream

I have this urge to scream.
Itís almost overwhelming.
And for days its been constant.

It is nigh unbearable and I canít.
Not in front of these people.
Not here, not now.

All I want to do is come apart.
To break down in to pieces.
But itís not safe to break here.

Iím so lost and confused.
I feel so isolated and alone here.
Itís like Iím in a goldfish bowl.

I donít even know what I need.
Let alone what I want.
I canít even get a job.

The feelings are overwhelming
Iím so confused and afraid.
I have no idea what to do.

I canít scream and cry.
I canít break and shatter.
But I canít hold it all in either.

Iím standing on the edge
And I have no idea how to turn back
Iím just moving towards the edge.

Save me before I lose it.
Save me because I canít save myself.
Save me because Iím so, so afraid.
In the shadows we trust.
