How am I supposed to get this out when I can’t think straight? I can’t think and I can't breathe and I can’t see what’s right in front of me. Bright sides don’t cure anything, they only distract. Don’t tell me to think happy thoughts. Because you don’t understand. Sickness that pills can’t cure Sadness that best friends can’t take away But take it away, this pressing weight, pressing in on my thoughts Like anchors Steal my caution so I can stare out at the sunset Like the cat on the windowsill Without feeling like it’s the end I learned the hard way that caffeine isn’t a substitute for sleep.
