pieces of me...


Escaping Thoughts

sinking into a sickness that lies
in the pit of my distress
I am often left wondering,
am I really doing my best
to express the doubts within me
those that rise to the top
like the fat of unbelief
which mottles without stop
always growing and consuming
expanding in its girth
suffocating my lifeline
to death it gives new birth
as I drown in the abyss
of certain self destruction
I am crying for a hope,
a reason to function
so if i seem a bit uneasy
be patient for you see
I die each day to myself
in a search to find whose me.
