Have you ever had a day
when nothing was okay?
you sat alone in a fading light
and you couldn’t get to sleep at night?
have you ever felt as if
your heart was going stiff?
can you ever feel
every touch makes you reel?
because your so deprived
its a wonder your alive?
people tell you to get over it
but the thought tears you up bit by bit?
was there ever a time
when the only thing you could turn to was a rhyme?
do you ever feel the way I feel?
do you feel like your emotions aren’t real?
when you sit under that fading light
when you sit awake at night
when you can’t remember what brought you to where you are
when you find yourself staring at things that are too far
when your fading into that shell again
and the only things you can think of are ‘what if’ or ‘and then’
you’ll finally feel how I feel.
