Fading - Poem by Nikki Lopez

Sometimes I feel
Like Im not even here
Sometimes I wish I wasnt
Life hurts, theres no way around it
Pain has been a constant
In my world
How many pills does it take
How deep do I have to cut
When can I be free
Take the knife
Out of my hand
Its too easy to use
Does anyone hear me
I feel like I cry
And everyone laughs
Itll be ok...thats what they tell me
How do you know
What is ok for me
You dont kknow how I feel
You are not me
Go back to your
Happy little life
And let me fade away
