Read introduction

this is my first piece on poetry zoo. it's a bit difficult to write fueled by nothingness, but please feel free to read with your own meaning.

i cant feel anymore

Flowersby lr20 Feb 2019

how do I feel?
like the waves on the shore
they come and go, but never cease to exist
with every deep breath my chest expands, and then
the weight falls harder than before
you cant see that i'm being pillaged under the crashing waves
sometimes i just don't want to breathe anymore

today, i take the mask off
its time i stop pretending that
i have full control

because in the water i'm drinking is poison
day by day i am extinguishing my flame
strength already turned to weakening
and i've been going by a false name
