Fades - Poem by Alicia Renea Carpenter

Everything I am
Seems to fade into darkness.
Like nothing around me is real.
As if I stand alone in this fake world.
Maybe i'm too scared to fall.
Fall for the pain and suffering around me
Maybe it's for the better,
Maybe it's for the worst.

Feels like i'm running,
As fast as I can
Like i'm trying to understand
Why I keep trying to make sense of everything

Knowing nothing makes sense.
Knowing everything fades
Fades into darkness and despair
Fades to black.

Everything I am
Fades to black.
Everytime I see my face
Screaming the secrets I wont share

I, myself, fades to black.
