secrets & roses

United States

everyone has secrets and sometimes they're hard to keep, but sometimes admitting them through poems and stories makes it a little better... at least for me

Message to Readers

this is a personal poem that connects with more people than just me. “i can’t” represents the moments in which i struggle because i feel as if there are things restraining me and maybe it’s anxiety that causes my fear to rise but whatever it is, it makes me feel as if i can’t breathe, move, and it can be worse for others. right now, there’s a very literal connection to the poem and while that was not origin, it connects. comment your connection. thanks.

i can’t 
breathe 

help me 
i can’t see 
there are 
arms 
wrapped around 
my body 
so i can’t 
breathe 

help me
i can’t move 
there are
chains 
tied around 
my feet 
and i can’t 
breathe 

help me 
my lungs are 
burning 
desperately 
begging 
my eyes are 
fading 
i can’t 

breathe 
help me
