insomnia part 3

can you hear it

the silent scream

chest is collapsing

my chest is concaving


crushed by the beast

by my beast

screaming failure in my ear

the clearest sound I’ll ever hear


listen to the world

feel from your senses

not your own thoughts

listen to the world


if only I could plug my ears from my own brain
maybe then I wouldn’t be so scared
