I'm not okay

So the floor on which I'm standing
Has dropped out and I'm not landing
I'm merely falling through the darkness
And I can't see the coming day

So through the darkness I am reeling
And I am starting to lose feeling
The vertigo is almost homely
And I am lost in the dismay

So very gently, I start humming
For I should have seen this coming
You shouldn't blame this on yourself
Just cause you knew not what to say

And the fear I have, is growing
For my speed, it seems, is slowing
Or maybe I'm just going crazy
Please let the pain just fade away

And these tears will remain unshed
For I can hear it all in my head
The faint and whispering melody
Or is this merely disarray?

And in the darkness it occurs
That I can hear the echoed words
"I really don't know what to do"
Which is simply my cliche

So the darkness now is spinning
And these thoughts that are beginning
Are crippling in a kind of sense
That I really can't portray

So as I sink into depression
Into emotional repressiong
To you question I will answer
I am really not okay.
