Imitation is suicide.

It feels like the shadow of death
pulling me in.

Gasping for air; to hold on

What I thought was there was a desperate illusion.

It feels like slowly dying of a painful death.

It feels like a loved one letting me go over a cliff.

It feels like I'm invisible.

It feels like my heart was ripped out of my chest and broken into two.

It feels like secrets, depair, distrust, anger, hurt.

It feels like being lonely.

The author's comments:
When my heart was broken by some one one time, I felt lonely and I felt like I couldn't trust anyone for a while at school. I was told by someone to let your feelings out in a song, story, or even a poem so my heart being broken is what inspired me to write this poem.
