Feel the world close in on you
Feel the water over your head
Feel the fire on your face
As you try to make things look easy
Let your guard down for just a minute
And the whole world collapses
Try to put it back on top
But it seems heavier
At last, it's on top
But a little bit heavier

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem when one of my uncles commited suicide and I did not want to talk to anyone about how his death affected me.
