Crushed

Sadness only taggs along after elation, chains prefer to cling to the freeman's skin, heartbreak only follows trust and expectations. trying to breathe, with lead-lined lungs, In an oxygen deprived world during an asthma attack. Grasping for the peices. Pulling them back. my mind ceases on the brink of a panic attack. my hands begin to shake eyes watering on the brink of tears, the last of my sanity to take, drowning in my fears.
