Why? Why do I feel so gone? I am now so distant I just don’t belong. Now I’m  ripped away from existence. I’ve become so transparent that I lost all  substance. Sitting nowhere, breathing fake air. We don’t feel anymore, so we  can’t care. Its about time I clear my throat. Let the hellish screams out till I  begin to float. I’d run a million miles from here, just to get out of this cage and escape from fear. You know you’re screwed when you  crave pain, you wanna bleed all throughout your brain. The blood in my veins is  proof of life. I’m not sure if its there, so I reveal it with a knife. Not me  any more, don’t know myself. Prisoner in my own skin, I no longer comprehend  health. It’s all in the family they used to say. It’s all in the family so it  must be ok. They hurt , they slash and tear her, they kill and  torture, they love the terror. We are our own army so lets retaliate. Fight,  destroy, show them real hate. Look at the fire in her eyes. That roaring beast  never hides. She lost all she ever had. Blood seeps through her skin cause it  hurts so bad. Her shattered heart pounds against her breast, scattered pieces  cutting holes in her chest. Slowly she fades as she quickly she drowns. Covered  in guilt, sequestered from sounds. Tilting on the edge, about to fall off. Her  mind is so lacerated it has become leathery and soft. The cuts on her wrist doesnt mean she wants to Die they just prove she is ALIVE!

    This is one of the most inspring poems I’ve ever gotten a chance to read. You can almost feel the emotions that were spewing out as you wrote this. Though I don’t think its about anyone in particular but it feels like its about me in a way. I’m a writer and I can honestly say that I’ve fallen in love with this poem.

    I just want to say that this is very touching. I feel like i’m completely gone sometimes. Like i’m in another world. It’s crazy. If you ever need anything or just an ear to listen, i’m always open 🙂

    You know you’re already invisible when you crave feelings. When you’d even take pain, just to feel something. Just to know that you’re mind is still in earth and not drifting along with the stars in the sky.
