Trembles all over my bones and flesh
A sinking feeling in my chest
A void that cages me like my ribs
Breathing inside of my hollow breast.
How can I stand still when I’m falling apart?
A thousand pieces of me
Hopes, expectations, dreams
Shattered on this cold ground;
Skin tearing at the seams.
How can I smile when I feel dead inside?
Pulse rapid on my wrist and neck
Blood thick clogging my veins
Thoughts crowding an empty mind
Fingers searching for someone to blame.
How can I believe, when I’m dreading the past?
Daunting, unmoving, monstrous
A shadow clung on to the dark
Fickle, feeble, small
Am I even a part?
