Breaking (Work In Progress) - Poem by Malcolm Hetherington

Feels like the middle of nowhere
This weight on my shoulder brings me to my knees
My back is bent to the point of breaking
How I'm still supporting it I don't know
But all of a suddenly I'm right here by your side
I'm at peace
Nothing else in the world matters
It feels great
As I reach out to touch you
To feel your skin...
The image of you shimmers and slowly fades away
Then bam...
I wake up from this dream to be right back here in this nightmare
Holding this weight on my shoulder
I'm tired...
Exhausted beyond my limits
I scream for help
But no answer as I sit here on my knees
