Feeing down

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Help! Can anyone hear me!?

Is anyone there?

Why do I feel so alone in a crowded room? 

Someone pull me out of this feeling, 

I’m tired;

I’m tired of my head spinning;

my heart, beating too fast;

the love that used to be

is now a vacant spot in my chest. 

Can’t you hear my cries? 

The ones a smile normally tries to hide. 

Why me?

Get me out of this pit of sadness, disappointment, and grief! 


I know I’m ok, but is that a lie I just keep telling myself?
