Stripped
by Steve

stripped of the happiness
i so recently adorned
by the one who made life
seem worth living and
convinced me not to do it
throwing me deeper than i've
ever been before
helping when others did
no one to turn to when they did
just here with myself
and my thoughts
escaping from my companion
making me feel darker
and just causing the sulk
unable to help with
my problems as he thrives
on empathy and nothing else
feeling terrible for
feeling bad
disgusted with myself
for being depressed
simply for her sake and
again forsaking mine for
the ones who seemed
like they could've had a difference
but hopefully one of good
rather than the **** i felt
raising my good mood
and sowing it for their sake
feeding the riches
and starving the creators in need
but how do you revolt?
against those you love the most
but how do you live?
with those who hurt the most
you don't
and you can't
but i'm destined to no matter
who i'm with, and who i befriend
they'll get raised
and i'll get buried away
from my formerly dim sun
no longer seen
through the bull-made layer
caused when love and hate collide
no way to respond, then despising me
but that's just where i go
every
****ing
time
this happens, but its just too much
and the light's gone from view
not just because of you
don't feel bad unless
you'd like to see me too
cuz it'll happen
a fact known all too well
and yet ignored at every turn
by all but the one who
can hurt the most
the one who actually cared
and yet...

I understand the sentiment...but it's been done. Sorry. It's different structurally. But. I dunno I'd have to hear music with it.
Oh no he just divided by zero again...*gets sucked into vortex*
