Just Breathe

"Death whispers to me

saying"honey pretty please"

But even if I ask it to leave

It still follows me

I turn down a dark alley

But no it's just a hall way

And i'm late for biology

But as I go in they,    stare at me

                                  glare at me

I'm wishin the would leave me be

Trapped inside a dream

But no it's a nightmare with no key

I locked the door wishing it would leave 

As my tears mixed with my pleas 

Please. Just leave me be

Why in the world can't you see 

I'm in handcuffs though you say i'm free

I am silent though i want to scream

This was the real me

not bound but not free

Not blind, no i can see

Telling myself"just breathe"
