Over Overwhelmed

Locked inside my mind
Inside a cage
Inside a room

Hiding from my mood
My gloom
My doom

All of those that yank and pull me for my time
And i abide
But it seems i can't unwind

Giving not to get
Time in regret
Lost and went

Surely what i have said
Not what i meant

Confusion of my own accord
Meaningless and bored
Self ignored

Slowly drained from the core
There is no more

No more motivation
Hesitation
Beyond complacent

I do nothing, though all i beg for is rest

Attempts at what i call best
Have made a mess
Have left a wreck
Trouble breathing, clutching chest
Hiding my death

I'm over being overwhelmed
No captain at the helm
Too busy fixing others sails
Still routinely in fail

Life i cannot master
Every ounce seems to be captured
Awaiting a devil's rapture

I plan my life for it
But yet i sit

No longer motivated
I'm overrated

Even with poor reviews
Nothing new

Losing all my pride
Just want to hide
Sorry, i tried

Just trying to get shit off my chest. Getting tired of whining though.
Through all my best, no control.
