Light Me Up: Spoken Word
It’s freezing cold like a –20°C on the inside. A –2°C is what is reading on the outside.
There’s hardly any activity going on; it’s freezing up: bitter cold — can feel my mind transforming into an iceberg— it’s that bad.
For a minute it sounds sad cause every idea, plan and dream is a cold stone, really stone cold.
I’m shivering yet hollarin’, wonderin’ if anyone can hear me, see me, maybe even feel me and read me but it’s no use ’cause
too many cries for help have fallen on deaf ears— I’m left helpless ’cause no one really understands what is going on — and it’s not wrong:
you can’t understand shit till you’ve been through it.
I’m frightened — not death scared— just frozen and all I need is someone to light me up.
Can you light me up?

About Light Me Up
Light Me Up is a spoken word poetry about depression, stagnation and the desire to be relived from both. Though depression may be difficult to fully comprehend by people including the ones who suffer from it, it is important to support them by constantly looking out and praying for them.
The poet drew her inspiration from a dark phase in her life. Though she is in a good place now, she strongly believes it will resonate with many.
