Railways

A Poem by breakthebrokenone
"

The photo included is of the train tracks in my town and this poem is about my depression and anxiety

"
Those feelings
of feeling so
alone
that there is no end insight

the Deep, dark whirlpool
that swallows you up
but doesn't spit you out.

And the one person you want to be there
isn't
and they don't come to you when you reach out.
So you suppress
and hold on to what little hope that you have left
and let the tears fall from your eyes
until there is nothing left...

So come down to the train tracks
Where a new journey awaits
To new destinations
Along steel railways

And you hope that you'd get hit
Because they won't miss you anyway

I love your visual imagery and the concept. Very well written. My favorite lines "And you hope that you'd get hit Because they won't miss you anyway" really ended this piece well and a place I am at now. So I agree fully on how you feel with these words...
