I scream, but nobody hears
I cry, but nobody cares
I look, but I do not find
I try, but I do not die
I wake, but I never really sleep
I eat, but I never really taste
I long, but I never really know
I try to stay, but it is time to go
I slumber, but I do not wake
I crack, but I do not break
I gasp, but I do not breath
I swallow, but I do not sneeze
I am floating, through the pale air
I am moving, though I do not care
I am strangled with tears, yet I do not pout
I am dead, inside and out.
I wrote thjs out of boredom in religion class and my religion teacher saw it and became slightly worried about me. So I decided I'd post it online. Irony!!!! I wanted to create the idea of a person, trapped in a world of misery they do no know how to escape, an endless cycle of emptiness. I repeat two lines about sleeping and waking to contradict one another to show that in both worlds the dreamer is dreamless. Hope you like it!

Oh, this is beautiful!
I love the way the lines contradict each other and the image you've created and the feelings you've illustrated. This is so wonderfully done xD

I draw or write things of these type in the back of my notebook, and my friends just looked at me weirdly haha.

I love this :) great job in making it!
