was i not?

tears wells up in my eyes
and cramps my heart
as this loud pain's scream
twists in into unexplainable 
twirls that just provokes
my unstable stomach

Its a replay of yesterday
that I cant still take
I slept hoping the moon
would rob me of the weight
of my sorrows
but no...
I woke to find winds
that fed on my flesh
and soiled my eyes and nostrils
with pain
Holding my breath
into the ice box
that contains me...

Tomorrow never promised 
me anything
so it just burnt my skin
when dawn cracked
I can't handle this heat
but it would not just come out
i want to rip out
my ribs and get some air
Its heavy...humid and suffocating

these warm tears
exploit my frozen cheeks
neglecting their delicacy
piercing my skin like
razor blades they itch
and makes me bleed
more wishes to have known

These streams flooding 
out of these slunted eyes
only filters fear from 
my system
And drains my energy
weakening me to a point
where i can't even open
Anopther chapter...

but then
at the back of my mind 
i ask...
" Do i even have another chapter?"
will I even see the other day?
can i breathe just one more time
was i not worth a chance to know
how it feels 
to look at you
to know you
And maybe...grow up with you
was I not...?
