25.

…doesn’t shine as bright anymore

Collapsing right before my eyes…

…faking my own suicide

Stuck inside this rut. Fell in by mistake…

…getting out might be the death of me

Need an escape…

…hostage to my own humanity

Dying to get out…

…no way of knowing where to go

Fought for so long…

…praying

Pleading…

…I’m only human

I don’t belong here…

…misery

Eternal misery…

…hope breeds eternal misery

Brick wall…

…no way out

Trapped…

…cursing, crying, screaming

Burning, cutting, stabbing…
