A blank page

Have you felt so choked on life?
that you cough up no words
unable to purge pain
lodged in between dead feelings
sweaty palms
shallow breath
spew silence 
a voice in chains 
defecates onto a white page
how do you read muteness?
with a blank stare
watching over
a trembling cursor
panting in stillness
waiting…
to burst into tears.
