Suffocating Softly

January 4, 2010

The world is small after all,
I realize that I don’t want to be crammed,
I don’t want to be part of the all.

I want to be alone,
I want to shut everyone out,
I want to be on my own.

However this world doesn’t listen,
I’m being suffocated softly,
Pretty soon I well glisten.

Just like the rest,
I want to be alone,
I don’t want to be some clone.

The walls are caving in on me,
I can’t stop them,
No matter how hard I try.

The walls are,
Suffocating me softly,
Suffocating me softly.
Until I end up the place I regret,
I’m naked,
Exposed to the whole world without sweat.

I collapse to the ground,
I have finally surrender,
You may have taken away my life.

But you will never get my deepest darkest secrets,
Because I never let anyone in,
Even when they beg.

The walls will,
Suffocate me softly,
But I will never loose myself.

In this battle,
I will be the only champion,
Because I will never let anyone inside my heart.
So watch these walls,
As they are,
Suffocating me softly.

I was inspired to write this because I feel like I'm un-original and I want to be myself but every time I try it seems like I'm just like the just of the world.
