My World

I can't stand this.

It's too much to bear.

Nothing's the same.

Everything about me has changed,

My perspective,

My thoughts,

My dreams,

All have been stripped away.

Now I'm alone

In a dark world,

But I'm not afraid

Because I made it this way.

The hard part is keeping you out.

You may not mean to,

But you are trying to break in

To save me

From something

That I don't need to be saved from.

The fight to keep you out is hard.

I am losing,

'Cause I'm not strong enough

To fight you.

You are winning.

Just please,

Don't take me

Into the light.

You won't if you really care.
