Losing Myself.


feels too heavy lately.
I am trying, but
it’s hard to breathe baby.
I feel:
Locked away,
Heart in chains,
Wish to stray.
My soul is drowning,
I can barely swim,
yet I’m still holding
on can’t let this win.
I have lost myself –
Who is the you?
And who is the I?
This sweet sadness burns,
like wildfires inside.
Don’t know how to
put out the flames of
You and I.

I hope these words will reach and touch some stranger out there at some point. I hope this is something anyone can relate to. I hope to help someone some day. I hope to inspire something to make others feel some way. I hope to find myself one day.

  1. I want to say I’m sorry. Though I must say all the words are beautiful. The poem or the caption to it.
    The artwork is great too.
    Sending you hugs.


  2. I really liked this poem, especially the end. Is it a love or a personality issue ? Who knows, as you said, everyone can relate to it to some extent. If you’re lost my friend, I’ll find my way to see you soon. I promised you that !
