Alone

i need you
need you to help me
trapped in time
broken, bleeding
never to be fixed
hopelessness
surrounds me
threatening to take my soul
the only way i am surviving
my heart beats
only just
my brain thinks
but only for me to shuffle
with no motavation
the light gone from my eyes
pain holding me captive
why am i darkened
depressed so i am dying?
im suffacting
choking on air
it's more than i can bear
people watch
wide eyed and scared
and even when i call out
no one answers
all alone
on this lonely road
i am walking
for the rest of my days
not a light in the sky
breathing shallow and weak
i fall hoping to leave
leave this pain and cruelty
then they will cry
regret they just watched
and waited
no avail
i am still here
hanging on by a thread
wishing i was dead
you could call me suicidal
you may be right
but i dont need a name
just a way
to see right

for the first time
first time in a long time

You're so right, sometimes writing just lets it out, and it's a better outlet than some.
Lovely poem, expressive, and I know way too many people including myself have felt these emotions.
Keep writing and thanks for the comment.
:)
