Numb, undone, relief
Pounding chest, this isn’t real.
My mind’s a mess, so surreal.
Pushing on, it’s an ordeal.
Must stay strong. Why so surreal?
Disillusion, feeling cheated.
Confusion, emotionally depleted.
Burning despair, this turmoil concealed
unjust and unfair, still so surreal.
Despondency, physical tension
virtual insanity and painful apprehension
Blotting out pain with nerves of steel
It’s happened again. It’s so surreal.
Isolation that stifles stillness
Desolation that fills emptiness
Battling growing nausea of life without appeal
Wrestling insomnia that’s suffocatingly surreal.
Hopelessness with nowhere to hide
Joylessness, dead inside.
Withering dreams flex and reel
A life slowly torn apart. It’s so surreal.
Oppression of suicidal darkness
Depression sees just a rotten carcass
Clinging to hope. It’ll take time to heal
Finding strength to cope, hideously surreal.
Weariness, resonating shock
Tearfulness, escape route blocked
Gasping for air from this raw deal
A soul stripped bare. Just so surreal.
Desperation of limitless grief
Frustration of destroyed self belief
A silent voice unheard, shoulder still to the wheel
Searching for words, feels so surreal.
