Favorite Quote:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


I am falling deeper and deeper
Reality choking everything away
Water fills my lungs as I am drowned
My eyes close to the darkness

Breathing feels like piercing needles
My fingers turned ice cold
As I try reaching for something familiar
I am pulled back underneath again

Sorry doesn’t cut the pain
The blade of the knife masks it
Vicious lines un around my body
And my skin turns pale

My last friend is my sadness
With it I can be hurt no more
As the numbing takes over
Depression is my last source of survival
