Sometimes…. I just want to be like you
I long to be like you
Unbothered with the burden of breathing
Unbothered by the effort of living
I long to be like you.
I long to escape my own mind.
I long for the silence normality would bring me, sweet solace in the emptiness of emotion
I long to break the cold embrace my thoughts constrict me in
I long the luxury of keeping you at bay so this monster is unable to wrap you in its terror
All i want is for you not to see and for me not to live it
I could scream and claw myself away from the tundra, breaking fingernails to crawl out of my own skin
I long the sanity of the sleeping of my demons, may they rest eternally
I long for the darkness to be gone, for my mind to remain strong
For the deepest corners of my mind to empty out its horrors so I may be at peace
I long the warmth of happiness effortlessly felt
For dreams of candy sunsets and nightmares chased away
I long for no one to be wrapped in the siren of my sorrows as they rip from themselves away from us
And I…. Only I remain it’s humble prey.
