I Can’t Breath

I can’t breath when my
lungs are filled
with all the things
I grasp ahold of
in panic
The tears I can’t
cry
The words I won’t
say
The secrets I’m afraid to
reveal
I can’t catch my
breath surrounded by
eyes
that see too much
that penetrate my carefully
constructed walls and
faux smiles
that wink at me with
understanding
I can’t breath around
the lump of
all that I’m unwilling
to share
all that I fight to keep hidden
all that leaks out of me
in these words
