Surrender

I try to cry but I can’t

I try to breathe but no air escapes my mouth

So much emotion, I can’t deny

Festering in the pit of my stomach

Winding its way upwards

Into my heart

 

You’re sitting there next to me

And I’m wondering what to do next

Do I forget to breathe and pass out

Or just relax

Live in this wonderful moment given to me

Silently hoping it’s timeless

Ending only when tears escape my weary eyes

Or my body surrenders its existence
