Burdened Flame

There will be times

Where I stare into nothing

There will be times

Where I don’t feel anything

There will be times

Where I can’t say anything

Trying to open up, and approach someone, to tell them how I feel

Makes my hands clammy

Makes my heart beat faster

Makes me feel like the walls are closing in on me

Makes me feel like I am burdening them with my worries

When I go to open my mouth

I am shut down

So, why say you are there? When you are not?

Whether you’re a family or a friend or even a foe

Just know..

It takes a lot of courage

For someone, like me

To approach you

So it’s easier for me

To hide the pain

To hide the hurt

To just talk louder than my pain

To just laugh louder than the hurt

To cover up

What I feel

Just so

I don’t burden you…
