"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you" - Maya Angelou


I am breathing in.
What I thought was air,
Turned into water,
And are now tears.

Tears.
I breathe in tears.
Almost, I cannot breathe.
At least not fully.

And I drown in them, my tears, I mean.
I drown in them, they drown in me.

Am i drowning, or are they?
I do not feel like I am drowning.
But I am, aren’t I?
I am drowning in sorrow and in pain.

I drown.
I drown in my tears.

This is amazing, I like how it goes back and forth, as though it's confused. You have a lot of talent!
