No Room

Written by: Amber Boillot

No room to breathe
No room to feel
No room to think
No one to care

My tears are all I have right now
My pain is all I see
No one understands anything about
The sadness that is in me

I’m trying to find a path
To find my space to be free
I’m looking for wisdom
Wisdom to get the hope I seek

I’m sitting in an empty room
Barred from an emotional heartbeat
The emptiness is like a blanket
Comforting, enclosing, and suffocating anything in me.

 
My strength and will are gone
No permission for hope, love, or feeling
The space, the emptiness that surrounds
Has now taken over, becoming me

No room to breathe
No room to feel
No room to think
And no one to care
My heart is broken.
