Breathing doesn’t come easy anymore
I choke on this air, we just don’t mix.
I stumble as I try to find my place
Inside this world, I just don’t fit.
Lost within the madness
There is no easy way home.
Collecting my tears on this pillow
Thinking why can’t I belong.

A failed attempt to find rhythm but
I’m constantly out of sync.
Falling over my words
I can’t get my mind to think.
Emotions fly through my head
Like crushed autumn leaves.
I’m overwhelmed by myself
Once again, unable to breathe.
