Status: In Progress  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

My heart feels heavy,

Mind unsteady,

Things that used to bring me joy,

I no longer enjoy,

My emotions have become dark,

Feeling as if I am being torn apart,

I try to speak,

But my words come out weak,

As if being strangled in the back of my throat,

Can't remember the last time I really spoke,

Refusing to let myself speak what is on my mind,

Again and again time after time I find myself in this bind,

So they go back to being my inner most thoughts,

No matter how much with myself I have fought,

I wish to be free of this pain,

Yet I can't help but to refrain,

Not sure if I'm scared to let people see the real me,

Or if I'm afraid to actually be free,

Feeling safe and sane in this prison I have built,

Whether from insecurity or guilt,

I myself am not sure,

Everything has just become a blur,
