"The sentence below this is false.
The sentence above this is true.
Try to figure that out." -- unknown

I felt burning desire
but still now I hurt.
Still now
does the darkness swallow me,
Leaving me alone
in a pool of despair.
My soul is shattering...
You began to understand
But no longer will you ever.
It leaves me sitting inside myself
For hours and hours on end.
I look into the mirror
And see death in my face.
I see the sorrow,
longing and grief;
Striving to be what I'm
Not meant to be.
I desire with all my might
To end this depression--
But now I live with consequence.

I can't really remember when i wrote this but i do remember a lot of things were going on and i knew one thought was in my head "i need to write, i need to write..." so i wrote...and wrote...and wrote...until i got this.
