The T-Virus

I haven't looked at myself in a weeks
Do you think they can medicate self-loathing behavior
I'm a lost cause I haven't left my apartment in days
I put my best foot forward just to have it broken
Gave her my heart now she's cutting strings until it falls
6 feet deep with a fancy to stone on top of it
I'll try to help everyone just to watch myself drown a little bit more
I just want to leave people brighter than what I was

My friend, you have a way with words that I love, "Best foot forward just to have it broken," dark, but accurate and inciteful.

I have been there as well, very very dark places, though long ago.

I wrote a poem for my son's, it probably sums up my advice (if you want it), better than I could say here. It's called, "Don't try to be happy."

I wouldn't normally mention my own stuff when reviewing others, seems a bit arrogant but I mention this as a father who cares.
Please don't be offended by the last line, remember I wrote it for my boys.

Beautifully stark, accurate poem you've written.

They can't... But YOU! You can, and do with your power to reach out beyond your four walls with such insight and clarity that shines so brightly Damon
