Numb with the pain
That encompasses me
Sick of the world;
The person I have to be
I’m broken and bruised
Yet I plaster a smile
I know not how I feel
On the inside
Moments in life
They blur as one
To all my problems
There seem no solutions
There’s only one thing
That will end the pain
The only thing
To help me feel again
I need a one way ticket
To check out of this misery
And ending it all
Will finally bring me peace

      Thanks Mags…it hasn’t been as bad as what I penned I must admit…but I’ve been there in the past for sure.
