That Choked Up Feeling

 

Do you know it, that choked up feeling

Where suffocation seems just moments away.

When you’re wanting that world to swallow you up

And never spit you back out again.

Everywhere you look, it’s bleak and black,

Failure beckons and you follow;

No matter what you do, it’s not right,

You're just a shell and feeling hollow.

When the tears won’t stop falling

But just come up and flood,

With so much pain and hurt

They should be tears of blood.

All you want is to make things right,

To make things better but just make things worse.

No matter the intent it’s like you are cursed.

You want to run away, hide, flee

Disappear into some obscurity

Where you can take cover and stay out of sight

No longer spreading an infection of complete

And utter

Failure.

Do you know that choked up feeling?

It’s one I know so well.
