Deep breaths

October 25, 2007
By Ashley Harvey, Bolingbrook, IL

Deep breaths and
short spurts of anxiety
I use smiles to hide me
from your prying eyes
trying to uncover the lies
of our relationship
I avoid your curios stare
my heart beating like I ran
15 stairs
I want to express myself but,
I cant
want to talk but I won't
want to tell you how I
feel but,
I don't
The words won't come out
The breath won't flow
why this happens I don't know
deep breaths and short spurts of
I'm suffocating
only around you
I'm suffocating
