What do you feel?

Excruciating pain

Swelling eyes burn in sorrow

Heavy feet moves slower

Burdened thought turn darker

Depression’s weights are on my shoulders.



Did my mind whisper, “Murdered?”

Chained, chained to the wheel of sensitivity.

Imprisoned under these thick walls of darkness and air

That suffocates me from breathing.

Do you hear that?

My heart jabs in agony in rhythmic beats

As I betray myself to think, my torturer is my remedy.

What do you feel?
