i cant feel anymore

how do I feel?

like the waves on the shore

they come and go, but never cease to exist

with every deep breath my chest expands, and then

the weight falls harder than before

you cant see that i'm being pillaged under the crashing waves

sometimes i just don't want to breathe anymore


today, i take the mask off

its time i stop pretending that

i have full control


because in the water i'm drinking is poison

day by day i am extinguishing my flame

strength already turned to weakening

and i've been going by a false name

      Thank you, I feel like it's just a lack of awareness to what season i'm in right now. Hopefully my writings will be more inspired in the near future

        To pull something out of an empty feelings is quite inspiring...

        I think you captured your feeling or unfeeling really well.
        Writing is like my therapy.
        Hope spring springs hope ⭐️

          Thank you for your feedback, sometimes nothingness is all the inspiration we need.

          Lovely 'feelings' writing poet. I often wonder whether i am writing poetry or self healing. It's good to let your heart and feelings speak out here. We have poets eyes and ears.
          Keep writing... more please.

            This is sadly fantastic. I hope you’re okay, but maybe it’s in your sadness that ignites your creativity - giving you strength. Good for you, keep it up!
