So many word in my head.
All the thoughts swirling in my mind.
These actions heavy as lead.
I only dream the ones that catch my eye.
If you're not careful, life will catch up with you.
Use you like a tool. Chop in more than just two.
Chain yourself while you can. Swallow the key before it's too late.
This way you can sink in sand.
Let it swallow you and me, despite everything.
If life's so pretty then send me a card.
I'm still the optimist though it's hard.
Don't be appalled at my optimism. Reaching isn't considered cheating.
But just trying to relieve myself o the feeling of the world on my shoulders.
It's crushing me like massive boulders.
Suffocating me.
Taking my bones and turning them into ivory powder.
My heart beat just gets louder and louder.
So I go into the sun.
And I breathe with my lungs.
I scream but there's no sound.
I'm running but there's no ground.

The author's comments:
I was extremely stressed out when I wrote this, I was surrounded by death. This has too many metaphors for me to explain. But perhaps you could find them if you looked.
