I Can't Breathe

How many hours

can these tears fall

before they dry up?

How long can I gasp for air

between sobs?

How long will my chest heave

with each breath I take?

How long will I write into the night?

I don't remember the last time I cried myself to sleep.

It scares me, my feelings

But they will fade

I should have known,

Tested the water

I know it wasn't your plan …

To hurt me

But it happens.

I can't breathe
