Annihilation

Annihilation

A Poem by Carly

There is always going to be darkness

I guess I hoped I’d find the light

I’ve always held onto faith 

You have to hold onto something

There are moments I could just scream

I’ve felt the air turn so somber

Like nothing can ever be the same

So numb, I can barely breathe

I’ve never felt so useless

So utterly out of control 

I’m drowning in an unfair world


Some days I just get by

Behind this shadow of who I used to be

But I’m good at pretending

Because the thread I’m hanging on by

Is only ever so narrow

I keep falling

I keep falling

But there are people who need me

I’m not the only one in agnoy 

And I’ll never really be free


Theres pain and theres desire

Then theres a flame of fire

Burning every grain of ecstasy 

Ash to ash

Nothing left here

No cure

Not even a fighting chance

Just a hole of false hopes

Nothing will ever go back

There will be no happy dance


Some days I just get by

Behind this shadow of who I used to be

But I’m good at pretending

I keep falling

I keep falling

But there are people who need me

I’m not the only one in agony

And I’ll never really be free

I like this one. I can hear a distinct voice in my head when I read it. I think the breath here reads as breathe. I don't mean to be annoying with stuff like that but I don't want a small something to take someone out of the feeling set here in what you write. Good job on this one.
