There is crushing weight in my hollow chest
The pain seeping to life’s every aspect
You keep telling me to just do my best
Will I ever be what you accept?

My shoulders slump, my breath is uneasy
I am but an insect in this wide world
The thought of your stare makes me queasy
Hide under a rock while I am unfurled

Too many legs tend to lead me astray
Delicate footprints, but yet too many
Crawl into your life while I should away
Too many eyes gaze at you with envy

Let me give up on seeing the sun rise
Assist me to drown in those big blue eyes
