Breath(e)

I feel like I can’t breathe;

It’s like the elephant’s not just in the room,

But sitting on top of my chest,

Laughing at the way I beg for air.

I feel like I want to cry;

That kind of ugly cry where you’re a puddle on the bathroom floor,

Where you’re convinced you’ll never solidify again,

But the tears never reach the surface.

I feel worn out and tired;

Like I could lay my head against the pillow,

Close my eyes and stay in dreamland forever,

But when I try I just lie there, wide awake.

Something is off, or maybe it isn’t.

I don’t know anything anymore.

I just need to fucking breathe.

So why are you suffocating me?
