Shadowy gloom silences the air,

Every breadth I take echoes my despair.

A heightened sensitivity to anguish and defeat,

Everything seems terribly cynical and dismally incomplete.

Not wanting to live anymore is a heartbreak away,

And this bleeding heart makes me an easy prey.

My bones grow numb and my heart goes still,

Every panic attack I get, has a tendency to kill.

All I see is a jumble of hasty steps that I can’t retrace,

And vile memories that can never be erased.

Every figment of existence burns me alive,

Heaven knows I’d rather die than try to survive.
