Broken Thoughts

My heart aches

My chest feels constricted

It seems hard to breath

With everything choked up inside

Tears threaten to fall

They succeed

I’m fine


But my inner turmoil breaks loose

What’s wrong with me?

I fail at life

And I don’t know why

Maybe I do

I’m so tired

But wide awake

It feels odd to laugh

Like the sound shouldn't escape my mouth

I’m out of place

Something’s wrong

I don’t belong here

Take me away

Part of me craves release

But I refuse

I’m needed here


Maybe not
