A Poem by PandaPeaceful

I've never felt this before.
The sadness, the pain, the need to
get out

I can't complain though,
People have suffered far worse,

I should feel lucky,
I really, truly should,
So why don't I?
Why do I feel like leaping
into the ice cold water?
Why do I feel like ending it all?

Why do I feel at all?
When I'm gone, 
When I'm anywhere but 
I feel free,
I feel like screaming and crying,
and laughing,
I feel like me.

But these torturous walls 
trap me,
They don't let me see- 
Judgments and hideous glares
drive me mad,
I should be thankful,
I should be grateful.

So why don't I?

Author's Note

I guess the poem explains why I haven't been writing lately.

The protagonist is expressing a heavy discontentment with either a family, work or relationship problem. Often people feel trapped even when other's see them as fortunate. It can be they don't see the true picture or that the person who is unhappy needs something else. Whatever you write flowing emotions like tears cascading with hurt and anger.
