It feels like I don't have enough air to suck in

that my lungs aren't full and I'm trying to grasp onto something that possibly isn't there, nothing is there


I'm sucking in air that isn't filling my lungs 

I'm grinding my teeth together 


My chest hurts from trying to release the weight of tears streaming down my face 


I'm screaming inside and out, and I don't know what to do


My pillow stained with my tears


My face flushed with heat from my anger held in


Sadness from a lifeline I did not receive
