Inspired by my best friend

Apathy clung suffocating her
Inhaling boredom, exhaling emptiness
Daily life a blur
She welcomed change with bitterness

Her bones wracked with discomfort
Weighted down by inferiority
Complete annihilation of effort
A grave lack of superiority

Her brain sucked dry
Thoughts brimming with criticism
Pleading; Wanting to cry
She lacked this mechanism

Existence on the edge of a knife
Steadily coasting in absence  
Ravenous for the thrill of life
Trapped in a vessel of indifference
