    Drowning

    My dreams are daunting, my nightmares haunt me, Past vivid memories taunt me. My mind is weary and discombobulated My thoughts are scattered, erratic, always agitated. Walking down that boulevard of broken dreams, despair envelopes me,hope is fleeting, all that's left is agony...

    What do you do When what you want is too far Do

    you cross the line and create a new scar What happens when it's too hard of a game To ruin yourself and stare at the remains When you fought so hard down to the limbs And you feel like your world is about to cave in You say you are strong When your body is weak It won't be long...
