  • The Burden (It Follows Me Around)

    As I live these darkest days
    As I live this wretched life
    I feel something is still
    Holding on to me
    Like if it was still alive
    With me

    I don't take notice the first time
    But this is the manifestation of a life
    That was needlessly wasted
    Because I was cursed by fate
    At first, there were dreams of suicide
    But now it's become a part of me

    It follows me around
    I carry the burden with me all the time
    It follows me around
    Even if it presses tight against my heart
    And no matter what I do, to surpress
    Myself and the shadow, we can never part

    It follows me around...
    Everywhere I go

    I am finding some similarities in theme in the poems posted. I found this one harder to relate to, because of the line "It follows me around"
    The rest of the poem talks of it being carried, holding on and part of you. To me these two ideas are different.

      Well, one's worries and trauma would be "following" them around, no matter how small or great they are. Even if said experience is shaken off, it will still be with that person for the rest of time. You get me now?
