The overwhelming
Guilt
Crashing over you like
An ocean
Swirling
Tumbling
Drowning
With no way to escape it
No way
Pulling
Tugging
Sinking
No way
Swishing
Twirling
Sloshing
Like a heavy weight
That you try so hard to hold up
And show the world that you’re strong
But when they look away
The weight comes crashing down
Like a fragile bubble
Bluffing to the world that you’re
Unpoppable
But you’re scared when they find out
You’re not
Like a balloon
Filled to its limit with air
But asks for more so it doesn’t look
Weak
Weak
The word that you use so often
Too often
Hurting
Stinging
Burning
Too often
Agonizing
Crippling
Excruciating
Too often
Piercing
Tearing
Throbbing
Too often
