I failed you

by Imperfection   Aug 2, 2019


Thinking so much
The pain won't stop
My chest tightens it hurts
Yet I feel numb
Can't breathe cant stop this feeling
I'm a let down
A freak
I let you down constantly
I can't even pick up a phone
And let you be there for me
I do things I don't mean to
I say things I don't want to
I can't even go outside
Afraid of how I feel if I'll survive
I wanna be there for you too
But how can I.
I'm failing in everything I do
Afraid to breathe take a step and walk to you
I'm like a baby hold my hand please cause I'm scared daily
Holding my breath incase it hurts me
The poision in the world it's all around me
So I try to burn it out of me.
I try to make myself free
But it's me
I can't escape from myself
I'm the poision with all these thoughts in my head
I question if they are real
But then I'm back to the beginning again
I failed you
I failed myself too
And that's the only truth

    This part hit me like a ton of bricks. Knowing that we failed someone we look up to can hurt just as much or even more so than knowing we failed ourselves. Thank you for sharing this raw piece, I know it couldn't have been easy for you to pen this.
