Seeing black,
Asking questions
Do you know where I am?
Not here nor there but
Sadness overwhelms me
Do you know why I feel this way?
Shouldnít be this bad
Never been like this
Where is before?
What was before?
Anger pushes the sadness away
Not far enough
It will come back
I knowÖ
But I donít
I donít remember any time
Iíve been happy
I canít think
All I can do I feel
But feeling is what I am escaping
Canít breathe
Canít see
What is happening?

Seeing black
Seeing red
Wish I could go back toÖ
Who am i?
Am I me?
Where do I go?
What do I do?
Iím going to explode
I need answers
But who do I ask?
I have no one
No one to talk to
No one who would understand

Seeing black
Sensing the truth
I guess I understand now
The darkness is my home
I deserve to be here
People have stopped being comforting
And the darkness never was
At least the darkness
Doesnít question my every move
The darkness doesnít judge
It isnít my friend
It isnít the enemy
It is my purgatory
And all I can do is just wait
And hope that the darkness will pass
And then I can go back to the light
Where my family is
Where my friends are
Where life is
I can go back to being myself
And not this shell
That could shatter at any moment
Until then
All I can do is wait

Seeing black
If you need me
If you miss me
Just know I am not myself
Just know I am in the darkness
Holding on to a false sense of hope
Holding onto a weak belief
I am the child hiding under the covers
So the darkness wonít hurt
I am the one who is closing her eyes
Whispering to herself as she fallsÖ
ďIf I canít see itÖ it isnít thereĒ

Seeing black
Bleeding red
My faith has fallen short

Sadness, like happiness, has its own majestic beauty and must be embraced as a valid emotion, not pushed down as an abnormality.

its touching really, tore at my heart to know someone is going through this, just wanted to say:
Someday everything will make perfect sense, So for now laugh through the confusion
Smile through the tears
And know that everything happens for a reason
take care.

This brought back so many memories of myself when I was 14, having gone through something very similar like this in my life, even now as I'm an adult, I still feel this way sometimes, but its better to let every word out than to show it among yourself, trust me I learned the hard way!
