Down ⬇️

It doesn’t happen all of a sudden.
It happens gradually, slowly sucking you in.

Almost robotically, you go through each day.
Each day, one more little piece of you dies while your consciousness is away.

Have you observed you don’t smile anymore?
Your false laugh comes out quite obviously forced and sounds more like a cry for help.
But you can’t even cry anymore.

And you want help but nobody notices. Nobody seems to care.
Instead, they make it worse, taking away even the smallest things you find happiness in.
Till you just want to be left alone.

And alone you go,
Slipping deeper down into your hell hole.

  1. That was super intense from the words to the selection of imagery, but sometimes when we fall down it’s life’s way of teaching us to crawl back up as a wiser & stronger version of our true self 🙂

    1. That’s true 🙂 what I was trying to show in this poem, though, is that when you’re in that state of mind, you’re at a place where you feel so alone, so hollow and empty inside and can’t think of anything else. And it takes time to come out of that mindset, come to a realization that things aren’t really that bad, and make ourselves think more positively.
