The monster in my mind

I’m tumbling

I’m falling

down an endless ravine

I’m drowning

I’m trapped

In the same old routine

Can’t run

Can’t hide

Can’t escape from my mind

Tears me up

Hurts me

Eats me inside

Can’t open up

without being judged

All feelings numb

I’m constantly drugged

It’s a constant war

In me

Everyday

Life’s upside down

Everything is grey

I’m helpless

I’m weak

Weight of the world on my back

Only a matter of time

before I crack

And die

 

Death

My only escape

The clock is ticking

No way out

Only a matter of time

before the candle blows out

I’m lowering the curtain of life

ending my strife

All the world’s a stage

All men merely players

Last scene of all

time’s finally up

Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

    This is so good! Love the rhyme scheme, and the short lines right after each other… the poem itself is very intimate and you have shown your most vulnerable thoughts, congrats for posting it!
