Love Poem: Suffocate
Travis Bonnell Avatar
Written by: Travis Bonnell


Everyday I die a little more inside,
But my heart is on my sleeve,
So tears that pour from it drip,
Until I’m gasping for air, I’m drowning
As life moves forward 
Im left searching through memories
Self analyzing, criticizing, profiling
Demoralized by how I got here. 
Who was I? Who did I let ruin my life? 
Anxiety and depression I had never met
Yet somehow they became all I knew.
I’ve awaken but to what reality?
Nightmares have became real
Happiness is all but a dream. 
When I shut my eyes all I see is you.
But when they open the emptiness of the world around me closes in, I can’t breathe.
