My veins? They bleed ink,
Thick, black, translucent blood.
The flowing won't stop.

Sometimes, I worry
My oxygen intake will
Falter and shut down.

I have night terrors
And wake up suffocating,
Asphixiating.

Sleep? A luxury.
I can't afford to waste it
Once I'm getting it.

Trepidation rules
Over in my world of sad,
Anxious tendencies.

There's too much pressure.
It's caving into me, my
Lungs and cavity.

I'm unemotive
Anymore, a cadaver
Behind curls of my dead skin.

Figmented only
By imagination, time
Is just an object.

Why should I follow
When I can barely keep my
Own head from falling?
Everything's becoming a little more stressful anymore...

This is a beautiful poem. I know how this feels. I wrote something similar at some point. Very powerful:dalove:

You grabbed me from the start, but that's the verse the fave is for :heart:

Why, thank you! I like that line quite a bit as well. Cadaver is such a nifty word. I mean, it's "corpse" with three syllables. XD
