she's overwhelmed
by his beating and
his bloody knuckles
that hit her numbers
of times every night
when she comes home from

I just want to let loose.

I want to scream until there's nothing left,
paint my problems on a wall,
write the words written on my heart.

I'm crying out, ready to be heard,
my mouth is moving, but I have no words.

I'm overwhelmed,

Heavy showers
Clouds burst pouring darkness
Barren devoid desert sodden
Flooded rivers overflow blood
Tides roar atop drenched screams
Torrential rains

Everything is a mess.
I'm falling apart,
And so is she.
I feel like I can't help her
And it's killing me....

kiss me harder
and we'll go down together
I swear I'm not going
because you're exactly what I needed
and you showed up the
looked away
I'm holding my breaths in
and imagining yours
your mouth
and everything I learn about you is a new
and you form constellations with ease
while I'm stuck stargazing
you are composed
and I am erratic
you don't see a difference
(I wish my words were as beautiful as you)

tilt my head back
inhale deep
I look up
at the stars
its humbling really,
just how insignificant
all our petty problems truly are
in this vast universe

it wasn't a very good day,
it wasn't very bad.
but in the end
the bad starts to overwhelm.

my mind fills up
with thoughts of sadness.
i want to be happy
but i don't know how.

And am overwhelmed by her vulgar vocabulary.
Apr 25

I can feel the pressure building,
Each incendiary insult adding fuel to the fire of my irritation.
Climaxing within the confines of my chest.
I can no longer ignore the ills of her ignorance
And am overwhelmed by her vulgar vocabulary.
She seems to love her children,
but in this moment I just see hate.
Obviously offensive words,
Spoken with such spite
The normally sought after position of shotgun
remains unloaded.
While they crowd in the back seat.
Fed up with her furry I demand we talk for a second.
Outside the scope of eavesdropping nieces and nephews.
I ask what has happened to my soft spoken sister.
She stares into my eyes,
with tears in her own.
and I know she needs my help.

I get overwhelmed
Dec 29, 2013

I get overwhelmed
by the idea that
there are people much more successful
and happier
and powerfull
than me
it makes me feel smaller than
the smallest grain of sand
in the big sahara
because I can't be such things

I get overwhelmed
by the idea that
there are people less successful
and sadder
and less powerful
than me
it makes me feel smaller than
the smallest plankton
in the big ocean
because i can't help them

This keeps me awake at nights

life is bursting
with fullness

fear of failure
strangles me
