Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

A sob climbs up my throat

Its steps are words of hate

And tales of failure


Tears sting and burn my eyes

And like waves flowing from a burst dam

Rush across my riverbed


Breath hitches

Chest trembles

Lungs constrict

Hands shake




I swallow it all

And the silence kills me.
