My thoughts are 

consumed by gravity.


I'm an expert overthinker

revolving around negativity.


There's comfort in the chaos;

it's easy to be downcast.


There's a familiarity to 

the weight of a heavy heart.


I hold onto grudges;

I carry around anguish like a scar.


Shadows don't just follow me, 

they bring me down.


They drag me through life

like a ball and chain.


I'm a prisoner to the darkness;

I can't escape my mind.


I'm trapped in a thought pattern

that keeps me captivated.
