"best way to save humanity is to turn the monsters against one another"~neil shusterman


The words are like
Knives thrown at my soul
My mind is racing with
A speed that should be illegal
My heart will stop beating
Any second.


It feels as if I'll congeal forever
With no escape and pure obscurity
My soul suffocates
It enters a maze which
The exit is unknown to me
My mind is pure darkness
And I cannot find the light.

Every single detail grows
Bigger and more painful
The acceptation of being
Truly alone
Hangs heavily in my eyes.

The tears become an
Unstoppable storm with nothing
In the world to make them stop
I weep for what it
Seems like eternity.

My heart is melting
It is growing an unfathomable hole
And every tear drops
Faster than the one before.

Everything crashes
In my soul, heart and mind
I feel lost, inferior
As if the wind could carry me away
I feel my mind parting
To a darker place.

This raw pain
Consuming every cell of me
I cannot bear the thought
Of feeling worse than this
I'm broken
Nothing is out.

One of the very first poems I wrote. I wrote it late at night, every word came flowing with ink.

With your poem I feel like I've lost a loved one. Not a happy feeling, but most certainly a powerful poem! XD Great job!

To be nobody but yourself in a world that is trying it's hardest every night and day to change you into everyone else is to fight the hardest battle a human being can fight, and never stop fighting.

This poem is amazing, it is so powerful and deep but also beautiful :) Your vocabulary is huge! :D And you use the perfect words to describe feelings, keep writing! :)
