This poem is such an excellent depiction! The thoughts expressed here are exactly what I'm thinking now. I also write to get away from the darkness of life.

I Must Be Lying

©

Published: December 2013

Sometimes I wish I could admit things
Even if it's all just a lie
Sometimes I wish I could forget things
But memories never die
I let myself drown in insanity
I can't find my personality
A demon has taken over
It's like I'm drunk but sober
The world around me twists and turns
My heart inside me bleeds and burns
The people I thought I knew
Have turned against me, I had no clue
I can't remember the days or the past
But it doesn't matter, my days here won't last
You see, I've got something on my mind
Something known as suicide
A solution for the one I cannot find
Just to put my life aside
A solution for the problem I cannot solve
When everything around me seems to dissolve
Should I be a friend and care in return?
Or should my emotions simmer and burn?
Why does this even matter really?
It's just stupid and silly
I sit around as life continues
My life is pointless, there is no use
I'm tired of trying
Yeah, I'm smiling
But inside I'm dying
I must be lying

This poem described feelings that I could never. It describes how I feel in such short words. Thank you

I want you to know how much this poem reminds me of myself. I've been suffering with depression (idk if you are now) for about five years. I've thought of suicide so many times and all of my "besties" have abandoned me so that just adds to it. But this poem is
great and I love it.

First of all, I want to thank you for taking your time to listen to my story ^^ .It's really nice of you.
My Story:
Three years ago, when I was 11, I broke up with my three BFFs.. I know it was all my fault.. I should have apologized the moment I did something wrong.. But I didn't. And now it's too late.

I wish I could be with them now. I'm just so lonely now, without them. I have no friends and everyone makes fun of me for being alone all the time..

~Well, that's it I guess... Again, thanks for reading!! <3 ~
