Little Notes In Library Books XIV

Sometimes I feel like there's a hand in my stomach squeezing and twisting all the way up to my throat
The cold claws dig deep into my scalp releasing a stinging venom that trickles down my eyes and cheeks
Steel rods punch into my sternum with a force that could knock down the most muscular body
A large burning ball in my throat nearly chokes me to death and I swallow hard to shift it
That's when the despair, distress, alarm, fear, helplessness kicks in
That's when I feel I've lost all control
When I know I can't keep everyone safe
When my mind races with exaggerated scenarios and shows me scenes I don't want to think about
Oh I'm sorry, do I seem a little snappy?
It's ok, don't you worry about a thing; I'm fine… really

Crack. Splinter. Fracture.

Split. Tear. Rip

Break. Scream. Sob

Burn. Cry. Bleed. 

You broke my heart today. And I thanked you for the attention

Any is better than none

I deserve better? Possibly 

I want better? No

Only you. Only you.
