Favorite Quote:
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. -Edgar Allan Poe

The world is loud.

Traffic, cars zooming around,

It’s hard to hear.

If the end is near,

But I prefer silence.

A peaceful protester in a world of violence.

I yearn not to feel.

It’s been 3 years and my soul hasn’t healed.

Why am I breathing?

If everyone I loved is leaving?

They don’t understand.

You didn’t understand.

I just need a helping hand,

But everyone is letting me drown.

And now I’m having thoughts of hitting the ground.
