Write [2/30]

I need to write
Because now
I can’t breathe
I mean
I’m breathing
But I’m not living
I mean
I’m living
But I’m not feeling
Not feeling the emotional rollercoaster
Vivian’s talking about
Cause I’m numb to it
Done with it
Done feeling the blues Billie always sung about
So maybe I should do what she did
And leave the world
Without thinking about how anyone else feels
But I can’t
I’m still breathing
I’m still living
And this numbness
Well this numbness is
A feeling
And it’s telling me to keep existing
So I
to write
