In Your Coffin


I just want to be where you are.

I'm covered in cuts,

I'm covered in scars.


The world is so cold without you,

I can't cope with the hurting,

And I just don't know what to do.


It hurts more and more by the day,

I just can't handle any longer.


I'm tired of trying, 

I'm tired of being strong.

My heart is dying, 

And I'll never move on


I wish it was me inside your coffin.

    Its actually hard for me to comment on this. I am able to feel your fear, frustration, and pain. You made me feel perhaps how I should have felt at the loss of my grandfathers. But at the time I couldn’t comprehend. TY for your raw emotion and openness
