Its like a day and night nightmare

I keep on trying to escape the darkness in my head

All the feelings

All the emotions

Start to become a blur

They are to intense

They start to become unclear

It’s an ongoing storm

I keep trying to escape

But there’s no way out

Because you see feeling something is a constant reminder that you’re alive

Feelings can bring you up

Can bring you down

Can teach you how to love

Or can completely make you not believe in love

Feelings hurt

But feelings help you grow

It isn’t as simple as saying bye bye feelings I’m done

You have to accept them

Truth is you can’t escape your feelings

And rather than thinking of escaping from them

Learn to accept them
