Without Identity

The pain I feel keeps me alive

And keeps me from losing sanity,

Yet, I grow numb with you by my side,

Numb with every passing day

As you enter my mouth,

As essential as water for my survival.

Without you I am nothing,

But with you I lose my identity

And the pain subsides, if only

For brief reprieves from sorrow,

And who I was is present in the mirror

Looking back in shame of who

I have become. Dependent on you,

I have lost my identity but I cannot

Leave to rediscover myself

Unless I wish to find myself without life

And simply another statistic for you.
