Crying in the Back of my Head

September 22, 2008

I feel like the world is collapsing
Like my head is turning me into something I am not
I can’t look in the mirror and say that it is honestly me

No matter how much I try
No matter what I do to stop it
It just stays with me

Company is always good right
So why do I feel like I am the only person
Screaming to stop this
I feel so alone

Plus my situation isn’t helping
Across the country in a couple days
Leaving my friends 3000 miles away
And not making one

I try and try
But it feels like there is nothing that could help me
Share my feeling to a stranger
Are you kidding me?

So what do I do?
Please help me
Please rescue me
Because being alone, isn’t helping

THIS IS AMAZING. The pain you feel is vividly portrayed through this poem, and the fact that you can open yourself up here is incredible. PLEASE KEEP WRITING!!
