Drifting Away ©

I cannot cry any more tears

my entire body is suffocating my mind

my breathing is hollow 

my vision is blurry

I wish I could cry

I am tired of screaming

I can not keep on fighting the same old fight

I am exhausted and mortified 

Perhaps I have not found my space

perhaps I am running on empty

yet, I am full of dreams and goals

and those seem to be drifting away

My own nature is currently failing me

maybe I have yet to recognize it  

I am falling and getting mangled in the web

I am the web disappearing in water

My true calling might not be this freedom

for these words are tangled in the truth

and the truth is tarnishing my sight

this world is messing with my heavy heart

When surrounded by silence

freedom overpowers my mind

Perhaps I must surrender 

and let it take over my life.
