Please

Please

1 min 255 1 min 255

Please, understand my world

The world i live in has walls collapsing around me

I can’t stop the thoughts

Yet I can’t seem to think


Please understand

The scars that riddle my body

Are not from the nights of weakness

But from the nights I decided I was strong enough to stay


Please understand

Every sound echos

Every touch suffocates me

And every look feels like a spotlight


Please understand

That I don’t know what to do

That I want to stay

But it’s getting increasingly harder


Please understand

I need ways to escape

I need the smoke that feels my lungs

And the blades I drag across my skin


Please understand I’m trying to live
