Stuck in Reverse

Tired

But I can't sleep

Hungry

But I can't eat

Full of words

But I can't speak

***

Stuck in reverse 

And I don't know why

Living

But I'm dying inside

And that makes me sad

But I cannot cry

***

Terrified

But I can't scream

Full of thoughts

But I can't dream

I'm breaking

Ripping apart at the seams

***

Trapped

In the cage of my mind

And I'm lying to you

If I tell you that's fine

I'm going to snap

Because I'm so tightly twined

The End
