Do you see me? Can you hear me? I am right here! I am screaming and flailing Fighting not to be consumed by the storm Barraged by waves of sorrow Pockets full of fear, heavy as rocks Slowly sinking below the surface Cries muffled by claps of thunder I am begging for help
You didn't see me in time I am swallowed by a sea of apathy Enveloped in cold, dark misery You won't hear me now Because I won't yell anymore I am sunken in this trench of despair
Filled up with empty words, Torn down by broken promises. Joy, elation, ecstasy, Sorrow, anger, disappointment. Up and down, up and down, Back and forth, back and forth. I am not a toy, This is not a rollercoaster ride. There is no ice cream, no sunshine, It rains, it pours, it thunders, Loud and disruptive and destructive. I reject it. I will find my own sunshine. I will build my own joy ride.
