Action, Reaction

Branded for the way you look
Your peace, your pride, your smile all took
Forced into groups for the way you think
Play your role with a plastic smile
You start to sink
Drowning in an ocean of false happiness, false approval

Why can't you see this?
It's concealed behind rubber praise
Bouncing from one to another
Lost in the haze
A social Holocaust
Trying to escape but you feel so lost

Pressure like cyanide
You want it now
An escape
The blissful steel digging into your wrist
Bleeding out the pain
An end with a twist

Now you're watching your friends do it too
Unable to stop them
The pressure builds again
But now there's no relief
Forced to watch as your family joins you
But it isn't your fault

No, it is your fault
Action, reaction.

This poem is very relatable and has been put really well. My favourite line:
'Bleeding out the pain
An end with a twist'
Wonderful.
I love how the ending makes me think as well.
Lovely work. I'm intrigued and would like to see more : )

Spectator

Close your mouth and open your eyes
You'd be suprised
For once, just close your mouth and open your eyes
You'll be so suprised by what you find

Close your mouth
Stitch it shut
But I shouldn't talk
Because I'm the one screaming

Go on, break the threads
You'll never be heard this way

Suprise! You're a ghost
Watching life from nosebleed seats
Critiquing it's plays
Waste of your time

Watch them drown in anger
Wish you could be so lucky
Choke them with love and adultery
You can't do it to yourself

Scream for the home team
Just so you can be heard
The world isn't subtle
So why should you be?

Let them chalk another win
And let them make another stitch

Tie the knot, close the wound
Pull the plug, dig the grave.

Easy Escape

Sing in the closet so no one will hear
Change in the dark so you won't see the mirror
This is such a horrible way to live
You hate yourself despite all that you give

There's no good reason, it's just easy
It's so easy to escape from the people who love you

Break the chains of trust
Move to basement
Live imprisoned in your mental cell

The door's unlocked
Just a few unsteady steps
It's your decision so don't play dead
