Y'know, I really hope I can pull off the cool mysterious deep writer persona. That'd be sick.

Do these thoughts belong to me or not?
Am I the torturer, or the tortured? 

All these self inflicted jabs, doubts, fears. 
It suffocates me and cuts off everyone else. 

I am a surface level person.
Friend.
I float at the top because if I sink any further I will trapped below. 

All my promises have been broken.
I let myself and those around me down.
When I reached rock bottom, I told myself the only place left to go was up.
It doesn't quite feel that way. 

I've explored the deep dark depths.
Adventure is out there,
but it's long and treacherous.
How am I still standing?

I feel like a weak, pathetic coward.
But I tell others fighting this same fight that they're strong because they keep going.
Does that make me a liar, or just hypocritical?
