My brain is screaming

with a million different words

in a thousand different ways


My head is a cavern

consumed with a tumultuous litany

a never ending cacophonous resonance


The resounding echo

reminds of the loneliness of grief

my heart aches for you

in ways I didn’t know it could

to a degree I never even knew possible

I hurt so deeply I can’t even breathe


I want it to stop

that ceaseless ache

just a pause

a brief reprieve

for a moment

but it won’t

No matter how hard I’ve tried to bury it

nor how deep

it emerges from the depths

and in one swift movement

buries me deeper


Help me please

I can’t do this on my own

I need you

to help me stop this endless litany
