Just Another Bowl of Cornflakes

I'm hollow and panicking on emptiness
I just want to feel something more than nothing
I want my brain to stop over thinking

I'm such a loser I came second place
But I was only raising myself
I'm overdosing on all of my meds

I want to slow down but I don't know how
The strings of my heart are about to break 
I'm always in pain nowadays thinking about heartbreak

My mind's not as strong as I thought it was
I'm breaking like clumps of sand
Another cut it won't hurt much

I showed my dad all of my scars
He said he was disappointed but that's nothing new
I want to slow down but I don't know how

Good and articulate piece of poetry Damon with as been said more than a shred of sincerity.
Nice one

Lovely. The 4th stanza rings so true for me. However, knowing this keeps me strong, but in other ways. Thank you.

I am new here and just finding my feet. Not wishing to probe is your poem based on personal experience or just 'made-up' for the poem. Just curious

Poems from a breaking heart invariably come from a deep well which lies within our true selves. The reader is able to feel your dilema and quite possibly relate to it. The third stanza is a cry from the heart. Well done. You have given the poem an excellent title.

you come up with some simple but effective images Damon - 'breaking like clumps of sand' is a good example as the reader can literally feel the sand between their fingers as they read the words. I like that very much. Col.
