Sinking In - Poem by Liyo Denorte

lying awake
trying to sleep
caught up with
the cob webs of thoughts


i'm wandering around
beckoning for them to listen
but i cannot speak
the vastness of my plea

a cold voice: you are the most selfish person i ever knew
a soft voice: you are drowning
then another one says: good riddance

i'm leaving now.
with the baggage full of unspoken words.
it's too heavy
would like to get rid of the unnecessary
i want to untie it
but someone sealed it
and 'twas very tight.

again, i run, i dance, i suffocate.

going down


d own towards the bottom
of deep anger
sinking in
a silent scream
