I just want to breathe.

I’ve been finding myself suffocating with the words that my heart knows but my mouth refuses to say.

They’re tied in a lovely bow against my neck
slowly squeezing,
I feel the warm stream of blood as they break through the skin of my throat.


I hear a soft laugh in the distance and as I come in and out of consciousness I realized that I still had a sense of cyclical humor.

These words are trying to kill me
And I just might let them.
