It is becoming increasingly overwhelming

The list seems neverending

Drowning while standing on dry land

Struggling to breathe

The ringing sound of silence echos in my ears

Making it impossible to think.

The pressure of it, is crushing

I simply can’t hold it up anymore

Expectations once had, lay broken in the yard

Shuffling the pieces, seeing how they fit

With the dawn comes new hope

So I lay with the pieces

Waiting for light to come, to break the dark
