A Poem by Quinn W

I guess you could say that I've relapsed
From outgoing and confident to an insecure recluse
Lies built on lies until I can't remember why I wasn't able to do that thing you told me to do
Oh wait... nevermind
I was curled up in bed with tears cascading down my cheeks like an overflowing waterfall
Watching YouTube and Netflix, distracting myself from my life with others' lives
Comparing myself to the people on the screen, made up characters
Lies, lies, lies, and more lies so you won't know how I'm feeling inside
I laugh and I smile but inside I cry and cower
Is the medicine still working? Is it enough?
Pop another Xanax, maybe I'll feel better.
My hands are shaking. My mind is breaking.
Whew. Honesty sucks.

I have always enjoyed reading. It has taught me many things others just can't explain to you. It has also fueled my love of writing. I love writing short stories, they're my creative outlet, Mom would.. more..

Worthy Worthy
