I have a story to tell, I hope you can follow
It's not easy being open, but it's a pill I need to swallow
"I don't do drugs, I'm addicted to the pain though"
Onward with this story, well here we go
It's a chapter of my life
2016 I thought I met my future wife
Then came the nightmare, 2020 got cut by Michael Myer's knife
I thought I was decent at math, geometry allowed me to see every angle
What I found out
"People change, even Satan used to be an angel"
I put her first & myself last
Everything I desired with her is now in the past
Need to find ways to cope; I don't feel quite the same
I hate doing this but I feel like I'm the one to blame
I become anti-social; I even forget my own name
So I turn to the one thing that gets me the most
Even if I listen too long I won't get burnt like French toast
These sounds make me calm then kind words from a specialist
"You call it music, I call it my therapist"
Miles apart, I'm blind, I can no longer see true
Waves are crashing, the current is strong, just seas of blue
"I know you're gone, but I can still feel you"
Your energy, your love; the vision of you I hold deeply inside
Is life worth living anymore, should I continue this painful ride
I smile and laugh, what I show is fake, the real feelings I hide
I believe there's truth in words
"Everybody has a dark side"
I wrote this because I saw Hayha's post for Writing Prompt #3 & thought it would be fun. Plus, I saw the quotes & they correlate with how I'm feeling so I thought this would be a perfect mix using those quotes from NF & the current feelings of my past I'm dealing with currently. I hope you all enjoy reading this.
I also didn't fully follow the instructions as mentioned. Instead of writing a story/poem on one of the quotes, I made a story with all the quotes included so if this doesn't qualify I completely understand. I still had fun & got to express myself so either way, this was great. Thank you and sorry if this was a tad bit too long.
