she gives her hands but shes still left with her head she gives that too but shes still left with her heart she gives her heart but it still hurts like hell so she gives herself and now there's nothing left to give.
i actually wrote a poem called “toss” a while back and its basically this poem but instead of the word “give”, it has the word “toss”. the poem always sounded a bit off to me so i decided to change that one word, toss, and now it feels like a whole new poem sheesh. the power of words amirite ?
Lying in this cage. Lost on closed off ways in which to succeed and to thrive I fall into myself and do a head dive Inside the depths of sadness madness No one seems to have the time or investment to place in you you have talents but when you cannot prove them you start to fade empty too. How do I escape this debt and pain of the lack of people? How do I prove myself as I do try so very hard as I still feel chained like a car inside an impound yard you have the strength of hope and grab ******* strength trying to pull yourself out of hell by light's rope. Send me a signal and I'll work hard to repay you Leave me to rot..to fester..to fear another tick of the clock and you have sat back to watch a good soul waste away as your failure to aid in his darkest hours take on his sanity..a heavy toll.
do you ever feel like you are a scrap piece of paper, people use you as a test since you have no worth, like if you never existed people wouldn't even notice, crumpled up and tossed to the floor to soon be forgotten, who would remember something so completely ordinary, lined up and picked off to assert your worth, never picked but left to rot alone soaked in bitter tears, does it ever get better,
One body One mind Feelings stretched as if an old loose rubber band At night, I would toss and turn Toss and turn feeling the weight of the universe In my shoulders In the morning, I would feel less ****** As if the moonlight has ****** out my feelings completely Left me only with the aftermath of my own war An empty feeling
toss turn toss turn toss turn weight wait weight wait weight push pull push pull push pull go stay go stay go stay go stay fingers throat fingers throat oh please stay five more minutes turn the sun switch off and throw your blue blanket over my eyes i am drowning in a sea of sheets and thirty eight daily battles but you took away my anchor so i've drifted off the grid with no boat water lungs water lungs water water lungs water lungs breathe in sink sink sink sink sink sink sink
