Head, pounding for hours

Throat burning, hoarse

Breath coming in fast, shallow


How do I run,

From this nightmare,

If it exists in my head


How do I get away,

From my self,

From my mind


How do I tune ,

The world out

How do I tune,

Myself in


Can’t understand my thoughts,

Can’t focus,

To comprehend my life


Long to be alone,

Hate loneliness

Long to be with people,

Hate having to explain


So I’ll stay here,

With my head pounding,

Throat burning,

Breath shallow
