Untold Stress

Stress pours over the sides
As I watch my heart fade away
I wish to find it somewhere
But I think the merchants sold it

I lost myself somewhere along the way
But if I find myself can you help?
Because I held my breath once
And you never reappeared

I dance and sing but nothing comes out
And the more I try the more I fail
So once I let go of myself
Will I lose all control

If I had the answers I would be okay
For the moment I stray away from life
So if you can find me
Find my heart as well

i really like the title for this! it really caught my attention. it caused a sort of intrigue. the meaning for this is so raw and it's something everyone can relate to. that's probably why i like this piece so much!

check out some of my work, too if you'd like. this is really great! keep writing!!(:
