Feeling so deep

So blue.

Drowning in no sleep

Unless I am next to you.

So from here, my dear

What is it I am supposed to do?

Fill my feelings of loneliness with rapid warm tears and bruised fists?

Rid of my anger with horrid screams and broken things?

No, but simply

Ignore the depression with a lighter and some green

Avoid the anxiety with some tunes and you holding me.

The one thing that seems to help me hold onto my sanity

Yet, I still refuse to allow you to witness me in such distress.

Now darling, since I am no longer an emotional mess

Would you caress my bare skin after you help my weak self remove this dress?
