Loud Thoughts

Do not mind me, I just want to scream

loud as can be, until there is no more breath left in me

until my vocal cords screech and crack and bleed

until my eyes water, nose runs, and I collapse in need

this release should be therapeutic, cathartic to say the least

I envisioned my life much better than this, even held it, while brief

feeling like all visitors are for a season, falling just as fast as a leaf

barely lasting until the next one occurs, gone before the rain turns to sleet

it is really hail that I feel on my back, beating me down, knees getting weak

in so much pain, I am silent, like the child that is hurt, unable to scream

hoping to release it with that next gasp of air, yet unable to retrieve
