Grey skies match the feeling behind my melancholy eyes,

reflecting the soul of someone who has never been whole,

craving to be what others desire and longing for someone to admire,

I drown in an ocean filled with pain and sink deeper into the abyss I have made,

Swimming to the top to get some air, I'm always one stroke away but never there,

Hoping, praying for the end to come; God just laughs and bites his thumb, 

I begin to think how the abyss is much like me; lonely, dark, and with no company,

Turning from the surface I begin to fade and sink down into the abyss I have made.
