Hard to Breathe

My world seems to

be full of chaos.

Everything about my

life seems to be off.

I just need to catch my breath.

Choking on emotions

of happy and sad.

Losing control of

everything I had.

I just need to catch my breath.

Making decisions

be they right or wrong.

Little to no sleep

causing days to be long.

I just need to catch my breath.

Mind is full with

no answers in sight.

Standing in the middle

being consumed by night.

I just need to catch my breath.

Broken hearts are

all around.

Tears are falling

to the ground.

I just need to catch my breath.

Moments of sadness

freeze the mind.

Reaching out for light

which is hard to find.

I just need to catch my breath.

Battles everywhere

won and lost.

Peices of me is

what it costs.

I just need to catch my breath.
