The Person Inside

The Person Inside

A Poem by Canicus

People just don't understand

they don't see what's behind my eyes

all the pain, all the misery

caused by all of life's lies


They think I have

nothing causing me to stress out

but there are many things

that no one knows about


Sometimes I

just can't handle it

I feel like crying my eyes out

then drowning myself in the tear-filled pit


My life is not all rainbows

like everyone thinks

it's far from it

and gets darker with ever blink


The person inside of me

is not a happy one

he is full of stress and sorrow

sometimes just wishing to be done

I really enjoyed this one for some reason (though honestly I'm not sure why, I just did). I like the idea of drowning in one's own tears.

Understandable feeling that is easy for some to relate to, this feeling isn't fun, but it something good to write about, and you wrote this well. I know I feel like this many times and days. Spot on write.

So down-to-earth.
I feel the same way too sometimes.

Really awesome poem, and really relatable to people who have ever gone through something so bad that it makes just breathing a fight. Don't ever judge anyone because most of the time you have no idea what they've been through.
