i was kinda iffy on posting this, but like with everything else i post, there's always someone close to me who wants an opinion from an impartial judge, so here goes

thrown back in this pit
i spent years trying to leave
you were the tree i hung onto
the rope that led me up
but now you've betrayed me
uprooted yourself
and reeled your help in

slipping down, further and further
into this hell i hoped was over
butchered in seconds
what took me years to accomplish

but now who do i have
to pull me from this shit
just left to fall and fall
until my body and the cold bottom
hit, meet, join, become one
watch other trees fly by
shrivel when i throw out my hand
all these lines, fall the
very moment i grab on

slipping down, further and further
into this hell i hoped was over
butchered in seconds
what took me years to accomplish

and i'm just left
to slip
to fall
plummet
faster
faster
until
