"I know. I'm nothing special. But. I hope. You won't replace me." "I think I'm afraid too be happy, because whenever I get to happy, something bad always happens."

I've used all I had

I don't know if I'll ever have it again


I'm so..

I can't say I know I've felt something

When it feels like every day is more nothing

I wish I had the strength to do more


But I'm so..

Like there's not a nickel left of me to go on

Like every dollar of my being is gone

Like everything I ever wanted could and did disappear


I'm so..

Like I'm grasping at threads I can't see

Like I'm broke and nothing in this world is free

Like I'm so far gone, nothing but the longest rope could pull me back in


I'm so.. Spent

I really appreciate this poem. I've been feeling like this lately, It is so relatable for me. It is nice to know that i'm not alone and the way you crafted this is so beautiful. Thank you so much :)
Have a great day.
