a place only i know

when life has gotten to be too much
for me to handle
and I feel like a storm is coming my way
when the sky seems like its falling
and the my heart is beating fast because all
my worries are quickly building up
and the weight on my shoulders is crushing me
tears are brewing on the rims of my eyes
and my lungs become tight
I close my eyes
put on my headphones
and go to a place only I know

    Love this. I've always had a happy place since I can remember. Out in nature with animals and plants. Beautiful choice of words. It flows together nicely. (:
