Nothing I Can Do

I want to scream till my voice is hoarse.

Yell to the sky till my throat is dry.

Till the aching in my heart is gone.

 

I want to cry till my eyes are dry.

Sob until I can no more.

Till the knot in my chest dissolves.

 

I want to run till I feel safe again,

Far away into the night darkness,

Till I feel at home somewhere.

 

I want but I cannot.

My throat is hoarse, my eyes dry.

I am locked in my room.

My chest is knotted, my heart aches.

There is nothing I can do.

This poem is about: 
Me
