by Bellarke

I am such a fool

to think that my heart would let me free.

Feeling like I am at the bottom of a pool,

the darkness is suffocating me.

I try to claw my way out

only to fall back to the bottom.

I look at the people all around

screaming for 'em.

But the darkness is too much,

making me disappear.

Sadness has me in its clutch,

making my future even more unclear.

Hey, Bellarke!!! 'Tato here for a review... By the way, hello!!! Haven't heard from you in so long! Okay, time for the review. Anyways, first I want to say, I love the line that says "sadness has me in its clutch, making my future even more unclear." I know what you are going through, and I know that depression sucks. If you need any help, please feel free to pm me and I will be here to listen to you. In the meantime, I have a potato joke for you. "What do you call a baby potato?" When you want to smile, don't think spud... Think tater tot!!! Anyways, great job on this writing piece. I love it! And I hope to read more soon. Have a great day! And happy writings.
