rotting soul

Mercurial Voice

i kept my gaze fixated on others,

and wondered why my vision was obstructed.

like quenching my thirst with saltwater,

i was killing myself.

"who am i to them?" my rotting soul would ask.

i died a thousand times over for people who cared less.

i don't want to die anymore.

    Wow. The way you encapsulated all of that in 7 lines is worthy of admiration! This was such a short peace but it spoke so true to my personal life. We usually "live for others" and neglect our own lives. Also the "swallowing saltwater" line was so apt for vibe of the poem. Bravo! 👏💕
