Deep in the Abyss

is where I live

Under the covers is where I stay

I know I am safer that way

Nothing to fake, I can just be me

Happy or sad, whatever my state may be

I’d love to crawl out, stand tall and strong

I’ve done it before, though not for long

It never lasts as I wish it would

The highs are short lived, the lows last forever

What would I do if I could? 

What would life be like,  if ever….
