You don’t have to add that into your piece, but when you submit let me know if you were thinking of something specifically. If not, I’ll pick one for you. If you do not provide anything and I cannot come up with anything then your submission will not be considered. Send submissions via email to activ.n.ationlitmag@gmail.com

I Always Will by Holly Sand

Nobody likes it here, they
all feel invisible,

each tick of the clock
reminds them they’re fading.

Fading away with every negative thought,

every comment that hurt,every person that walked by without a care.

You feel like your life is
a charade;

you do the actions, but no
one seems to understand.

No one seems to hear you,

to see you,

to feel you.

I’m here. I’ll hold you.

I’m here. I’ll love you.

I’m here. I’ll care for you.

I always will be.

Leave this place, leave it forever.

You think you can’t,

but in truth, it can’t leave you.

The blackness swallows you
up,

swallows until there is no more smiling face,

until you’re nothing but an empty shell

“Nothing, nothing, nothing.”

These words ring in your
head.

You talk, and feel like no one is listening.

Your heart aches for someone,

anyone,

to listen,

to love,

to care.

You feel like your life is a charade.

You do the actions, but no one seems to understand.

No one seems to hear you,

to see you,

to feel you.

I’m here, I’ll hold you.

I’m here, I’ll love you.

I’m here, I’ll care for you.

I always will be.

as you watch people walk by,

not paying attention to you,

you feel like screaming,

you think running is your only option,

I’m here run to me,

I’m here stay with me

You feel like your life is a charade.

You do the actions, but noone seems to understand.

No one seems to hear you.

I hear you, I always will.
