I don't really think I'm very good a poetry, but I'm willing to get better. So feel free to critique.
This is basically something I wrote one day because I felt inspired by my own actions.
I'm new to the site, so this is my first post.
You long for the chance to breathe again
You always feel the walls caving in
You fall all the way down
But no one helps you up
You claw your way to the surface every time
You beg "come back up and tell everyone you're fine."
Do what you do every day of your life
"It's all good" you say to the other empty shells
But maybe they're not so empty
'Cause they don't crash their own integrity
Can't you see you're losing this contest
You're the only one who chose this path
But this simplifies all matters still
'Cause this way no one has to fit the bill
You guess it'd be nice, but you don't ask
The dirt in your nails will wash out soon
No, you don't need any ladder to fight
Your way out of this constant night
It's not a problem, hey, you like night
There's no one there for you to push away
No, don't let anyone lend a hand
Your body is impervious to any brand
Of weakness, if that's what it's called
So wave goodbye to the terror below
But wait your right foot is loose
Where's your footing, is there a noose?
So close to the top, hear the roar
See the world of all voids filled
But wait, it's far too late
Where's that ladder? Is this fate?
Oh that's right, there's no help for you
But it's your fault, it's your mistake.
