'I can't drown my demons they know how to swim" -Bring me the Horizon

    Drowning in tears
there is no one near
to save me from my fears.

        Deeper I go down
   I can no longer breathe
  Can’t you see?
My demons are doing this to me.

  Depths of my mind I’ve never seen.
       A dark place, I can not see
                 hands grabbing me.
Dragging me down to my knees.

They speak to me
telling me things that I start to believe
Voices filling my head
I can no longer comprehend
“You are ugly.”
“You are worthless.”
“You are nothing.”
They never go away

They’re suffocating me.
                           My heart is beating.
In my head I’m screaming
                        and I just keep thinking…

       “Why doesn’t anyone help me?”

Very sad, but the description was great. I think this would be a great dramatic prose, I can imagine a girl with a script of this poem on a dark stage acting this out. It has a vivd perspective and depth that can have many themes and symbols. I also adore the shape of the poem, it only helps more. Great writing and please make more! :)
