THE WEAKNESS I BEAR

image

I feel,
A digging deep into my skin
Through the covering to my tissues
I feel its pinch in my membranes
Going down through my vessels Into the blood and to my bone

The weakness I bear!
It splits me apart In halves,
in bits and pieces My breath’s gone away
My lungs are sealed up I am dazed and frozen
Without a sense to feel

The weakness I bear!
Am like a bird that drops Lifeless to the ground
Boundlessly, It gasps for air
Yearns for a lift in the air
So it could flap its wings in the air
Like I’d imagine angels fly

image

The weakness I bear!
Am afraid I can’t let it out
I’ve mastered the cover
I think it’s a hard cover Clothed by another
A mass of layers of gravel
But deep down beneath my chest
In a place I call “A blocked cage”
Where my heart meets with reality
I feel the tickle of the fumes In a chimney that longs to run dry
But instead I choke the smoke in With the “no one will care” mind
“No one will understand” attitude
Which I’ve empowered to rule over me
So my heart melts in anguish and confusion
The pain I nurtured grows and thrives
Somber hides behind my waning smile
My thoughts become darkened and blackened

The weakness I bear!
Why?
Why?
But why?

  1. But instead I choke the smoke in With the “no one will care” mind 
    “No one will understand” attitude 
    Which I’ve empowered to rule over me
    So my heart melts in anguish and confusion 
    The pain I nurtured grows and thrives
    Somber hides behind my waning smile 
    My thoughts become darkened and blackened
