"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.

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.

"Let us go then, you and I/When the evening is spread out against the sky/Like a patient etherized upon a table/Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets/The muttering retreats/Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels/And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells/Streets that follow like a tedious argument/Of insidious intent/To lead you to an overwhelming question .../Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”/Let us go and make our visit."

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