Before

BEFORE

It happens slowly
Minute by minute
Second by second

You withdraw from life
You withdraw from friends
You withdraw from you

Your thoughts darken
Your heart is poisioned
Desperation twists you

What your mind tells you
What you've become
What your world is

It is not
You are not
Who you were
Before

    I love this and i feel this same way. for whatever reason, people have to suffer heartbreak and sadness. that's how i relate to your poem. people can take this into so many differetn aspects of their own lives, an i think that's what's so great about this particular one. amazing job! :) would you please rrc my new one, "put to rest" and "find the cure"?
