It gets harder to breathe,
When you’re under six feet
Of depression pain and the lack of sleep
I think I’m in the deep.
I’m suffocating, no oxygen,
Chances of surviving, thin.
People don’t notice your plight till it’s too late.
I think that may be why everyone is so desolate.
Some of us know how to swim, but everyone is dragged under
There’s a sea storm don’t you hear the thunder?
We’re all swimming through this ocean of desolation and loneliness.
We’re all just waiting for the time when we don’t have to feel like this.
Do you even care?
I’m dying here and you’re not there
Is this love? Five knives in my chest
The metaphorical sharpness of your words cut into my skin
Its ever lingering and the misery is festering within.
I’ve not know love to be this morbid,
Confusion running amock in my mind.
Why is it so tough for you to be kind?
Your voice echoes in my head
A symphony to which nothing can compare
Without you, I feel so dead.
Without you, I can’t help but despair
Everything is now a person to me
Gone are the days I felt lonely
Now I have another to complete me
My boo, my everything, my baby
Swear i never thought I’d feel this way
But now I look forward to the day
I’m gonna be spending every moment with you
In your absence i feel so blue.
I’m blessed as hell.
I don’t know if you can tell
But i want to spend my life with you.
I just hope you feel the same way too.
You make me feel like myself
Jesus boo, i could see you in my arms
We could chill by ourselves
I’ll keep you safe from harm.
You look like an angel
And sound like one too
For you i fell,
I’m in love with you.
The poets aren’t sleeping
The poets are enraged.
The promises made by the government weren’t meant for keeping
The crowd was engaged.
Shells containing tear gas fell from the evening sky
Poisonous enough to make you cry.
The country is in turmoil,
The people live in fear
It’s time to make the perpetrators recoil.
The time to rise is near.
You came into my life suddenly
Like a tide, you swept me off my feet,
Its safe to say I fell for you.
I have no clue what to do
With these emotions,
It’s like I’m questioning my notions
Of love cause this is something I’ve never felt before
Thought this type of love only existed in lore
I’m glad you’re here with me
I promise you won’t be lonely
I’m hurting right now
All i see is black.
I don’t understand how
Life can lack
The lustre that makes it worth living
Man, i thought i found happiness,
But I’m doubting it’s a real thing,
I’m becoming emotionless.
Apathy is getting to me
Messing with my mind
Questioning if my conscience is guilty
I’m mean, but I’m kind
I put up walls that make me despise myself
At least it’ll keep you far away from me
My heart’s finally of the shelf.
I’m fine being lonely.
Her eyes were brown,
Like honey in sunlight,
And if she looked down,
You’d find yourself missing the previous sight .
She was radiant,
Like the sun on a clear day,
She looked magnificent,
She’d steal the words you thought you’d say.
She was cheery, like the embodiment of spring,
You’d find yourself likened to a autumn leaf.
Nothing would prepare you for the sting
That she belonged to another, thus you must take your leave.
What will be, will be,
You’ll find happiness,
I wanna hold your hand,
I wanna hear your laugh,
Lately, it’s like I can’t stand
without you, I am only one half
of us. Somehow it’s not enough.
I’m looking to days when it’s not this tough.
I mean it when I say i love you,
because in reality, I really do.
I just hope, forever this feeling stays,
I just wanna live in the better days.
