You're too complacent

A stranger in my own skin
Even I don't know where I've been
My mind is always distracted 
Don't know what I've contracted 
My heart beat makes quite a din 
You can hear it if you're listenin'

It's when I think of you 
I don't know what to do
I bet you don't know who
I am or even what I do 

I'm lying to myself 
You know me better
Better than anyone else

I regret what we did 
Who we became
What I undid 
It'll never be the same 

But you're constant 
Too complacent 
You thought you were trying
But we were still dying 
I was falling and falling 
Always falling 

Now I let go
I don't know
Who's falling faster?
It doesn't matter
As long as we make it
When the bottom is hit 
We can climb back up together 
We can blissfully climb forever

That turn around in the end was awesome...From start to end actually the poem was quite captivating

Like it Aishah,

It looked like it was heading for a fatalistic end and then the twist. You rise again like the phoenix...
"blissfully climb forever."
