Breathless Days (acrostic/Sonnet)

by Kasie   Sep 4, 2017


Behind the smile that's painted on her face,

Remains a girl, who tries so hard to breathe;

Encumbered by the feeling of disgrace

And ev'rything that hasn't been achieved.

The burdens of anxiety are blind,

Harassing ev'ry step she takes alone.

Loud, are the voices, screaming in her mind,

Extinguishing her hopes to solid stone.

Surrounded by these memories of hate,

Sarcasim is her only way to cope.

Degraded by a worthless mental state

And left alone to gather up her hope.

You see, these thoughts that linger in my mind,

Still leaves me breathless
........ev'ry
........single
........ time.

    Cassie, You wrote about something which has become a part of our daily life.
    Call it anxiety, stress, depression or darkness they all are the same.
    I just hope and pray that for whomsoever you have written it find the way out of it.

    Good to see it is nominated.
    Thank you.
