Poetry

Breathless

I cannot breathe.

I need someone to understand.

No wait… I need approval,

Of these thoughts and feelings

Why does it feel wrong to feel?


My chest pulses.

My mind races while I wait,

Wait for someone to listen,

And show their approval.


It’s so hard to breathe now.

I need to stop searching for validation,

I must rely on myself,

Because I am the only person I have to live with.
