My heat rate tripled at every thought.
I’m imprisoned in my own dark cage.
Grief smeared over my breath.
My tongue screeches.
Thousands of words I can’t say loud,
Chokes my yelling voice.
My eyes are heavy.
With countless drops
Running down my cheeks.
Satisfying my pillow all night long.
My flesh wizened.
The weight of the woes crack my bones.
That, stung like hell.
I’ve been going round and round in this
Dark night of my soul.
