"I know how it feels to be completely alone and helpless, and the last thing you want to hear in that situation is, 'It's going to be OK. ' The only thing that seems to really help is that someone else who has felt that low expressing those feelings"


Can I sleep backwards in my bed
Tonight?
With no energy to even turn out the
Light.
I wonder how the words can
Form
When others've said they have
Sworn
to save me.

When I write, I sit backwards in my bed. I was super tired, one night, and got the inspiration for this poem.
