A Poem by Vidya Bacchus

Sometimes you just want to sink.


My pain is my own,
Yet you stand there with your pity,
And "I know how you feel"
How could you? Why would you want to?
I wish to feel numb safe from this torment,
And you want to "understand this feeling"

I want to be appreciative and grateful,
For your kindness but I'm hurt,
And you don't understand,
And no, you have no inkling of my sorrow,
Leave me be,
Let me drown in nothingness.

And if you are my friend,
And you want to ease my pain,
You will meet me on the other side,
Where your kindness isn't like a thorn,
Digging deeper into my wound,
But a healing salve on my aching heart.

OH GAWD I wish I had written this, and EXACTLY. I always try to see beyond the angst, we all have our own demons, and there's a reason behind it. We won't let you drown though Vidya. Shot right between the eyes with this one....!
