Breathing in
Sucking out

There's nothing about this place
That makes me want to shout about
And feeling

Every day ends staring at the ceiling,
Counting the cars I hear
Never stopping
Always going

Somewhere to be
Always doing
Keeping busy
Forgetting to breathe,
Feel relief
Or even remembering just what it was.

If its not the cars
Its the crows
Endless noises
Including my toes cracking
Ears collapsing
Where is there peace?

If writing is a part of me
And something that I have stopped
Then, where is the self expression I need?

It's clear there's a clot,
And a catastrophe
For this smothering of other brain
Is winding me up daily and making me feel insane.

So confusing is this battle I feel I am losing,
But with only one contender,
I have to pretend
To be stronger than I am.

The pen is my sword,
Helps me battle with the words and
Thoughts and feelings abound.

Watching the emotions as they flow -
Feelings I didn't know
Falling to the paper,
Crashing to the ground.
