Untitled poem

hi
I'm here
    right here
I'm on the edge of something big
I'm on the edge of something new

           edge of a cliff--should I step forward?
           edge of my bed--should I step forward?
                           which side?

I'm on the edge of my seat
I'm edgy
    lost my feet
    they went down the cliff
    can't walk
it's like I'm paralyzed
the words, they swim before my eyes
my eyes are swimming
    I can't swim
            stuck
            stuck here
      can't move
      at least I can't step off a cliff
      but what does it matter
      if I can't step out of bed

    Wow this is pretty unique. What is the name for this kind of styling when the indents are like this?

      No idea. I can't remember where I got it from (or I might have created it).

        Hm interesting. And if the poem is about real life, I do hope that things get better :(

          I wrote it a while ago. Have had ups and downs since then, currently in a bit of a slump but I think I'm on my way up! :)
