Despair


A feeling

Overwhelming

Won’t let me breathe

Constricts me

All I can do is seethe

At what cannot be

All I can feel

All I can experience

Is bleakness

Gray

A sense

Of hopelessness

A sense

Of loss

A feeling

Of failure

The heavy weight

In my chest

Tells me

No matter how hard I try

Can never be my best

Despair

O despair

So powerful

Please

I beg you

Leave me be

Leave me free
