From Down Under

Partying,
Drinking,
Smoking.
Something's wrong with me.

Cutting,
Proposing,
Peircings.
Can someone please help me.

My world I once knew
Oh, so well
Has crumbled under my feet.

I realize now,
all my pain is
From down under.

Once again the needle
hits my bear skin.
I just can't seem to stop.

Addicted
Just one more night
I whisper to myself.

In the night I realize
All the things I've gone through are
From down under

The man I once knew and loved
had lied to me about the
other girl

In my life,
Everything with my brokeness is
From down under.

Wow! This is so good! Your writing has a sort of rhythm to it, especially the first two stanzas. Five stars, and I really do hope it got better for you. :)

Wow. That's so sad! Just wondering exactly: what do you mean about "It's all from down under"? This is so heart-breaking! I like how you wrote this!
