I am only but breathing
Staring at the wall
Trying to feel nothing
As if I could mask out the thoughts in my brain
Sometimes I can’t breathe and I’m left gasping
only to not have it found
Breathing seems so hard
in the moment
And the air invisible,
Barely able to move down my throat.
I still can’t seem to catch a breath
And the memories are suffocating me
I try to let out a loud scream
But I’m afraid I’m stuck,
in this god-awful dream.
