given up

I am giving up 
I am giving up slowly 
This may be the death of me 
Just have to get out of here
I need to escape 
I been housing all these scars and insecurities 
The walls are closing in on me 
All the pictures and the windows and walls are closing in on me
I don’t know what to do
All alone don’t know how long I can hold on
Just sitting on the ledge waiting for the next move to make
one little step and life can be lost 
stand up take a step and now im gone.
