On Edge

My breath I keep holding in Waiting watching knowing it soon will begin I try to release and just breathe But air isn't what I need Drama turmoil and confusion seem to rule each day Nothing breaks the cycle to my dismay The breeze gently blows caressing my skin My breath I catch myself holding in Consciously letting my muscles down my breath it's release Then screaming to the sky just hurry up please Sobs wreck havoc on my entire being Feet itch to just start fleeing I watch little ones create and play Just trying to pass yet another day Then I remember I once enjoyed such things My breath I find myself holding in.. With the tension always building consuming How do I heal my life resuming Waiting watching knowing it's soon to begin Black clouds hover.. My breath I find myself holding in
