Weightless

I feel like I’m drowning and no one can help me.

I have no idea what to do.

My head is spinning from the decisions I need to make

From choices I had to make.

My chest is caving in

The weight of the stress and anxiety is crushing

My head

Rushing

How much longer can I hold on to my last breath?

I can see the surface but I have bricks around my ankles

They’re so heavy

The world is so heavy

Weighing me down

Drowning me, pulling me under

Why is it so dark and cold down here?

I need to breathe. I want to breathe

I have to keep kicking my feet

I have to keep trying

My deprived lungs gasping for air

That one breath

Is everything.
