The Pain Inside

Am I okay?
I can feel the stabbing pain growing deep inside of me
The bundle of memories of her bombarding my head with doubts of ever feeling love again
The fear of being alone suffocating me,
Pulling me away from happiness
Even when surrounded by people
No matter how loud I want to scream out, i don’t
Keeping my feelings submerged inside, unaware that one day they will consume my every move, my every thought
Not being able to suppress them
They will soon boil over, causing even more agony and affliction
Am I okay?
The higher I try to climb out of my pit of ever growing darkness
Only adds length to how long I could fall back down into it
Leaving me with only my tormenting thoughts, descending into the nothingness that I had once came from
Am I okay?
Will I lose the ever-growing battle going on inside my head
Cautiously hiding behind a fraud smile
Burying my feelings with the hope that nobody will be able to wound them again
I am not okay
But I can fight to be
We can all fight to be
All of us are broken in dissimilar ways
It is up to us to to find our path to the passions we love
The people who are willing to piece us back together
Making us wise against what once broke us, and strong against those who will tear us back down
