Let It Out: The Hardest Lie
Breathe. Pant. Choke.
My air cuts short, My eyes tremble and tear.
I shake, Tasting Defeat.
This shiver sends through me.
I want to stop.
I just can't.
I'm not good enough.
I'm not perfect.
Not skinny, not right.
The more I eat the less I breathe.
It sends Agony through me.
My mind so blank,
Not hardly clear.
I'm not afraid to say"Goodbye."
It's the open mouth that scares me.
What I've done,
Who I've become...
There's no equals to that equation.
I lost myself long ago,
How I got here, I just don't know.
Tell me"Goodbye." before it's too late.
I tremble and I shake.
How can you say"Adieu."? I wonder,
"If I never said 'Hello' to you."
As my pen shimmers, I see it shows,
The light my eyes once did.
I'm not her anymore.
But who I am, I'm just not sure.
