Can I Breathe?


Rent less.
Suffocating thoughts that are choking me into a suffocation of not death but in ever lasting thought 
I’m here trying to breathe freely
But these thoughts just keep going down the wrong pipe.
I just wanna breathe.
Breathe freely. 
Breathe without worry and nervousness
Not with the hand of thoughts around my innocent neck of life

My mind..
This night a blanket covering the sun who shines and brings brightness to my world of darkness
Giving me temporary feelings of relief
To my ever racing mind
That I feel keeps loosing
Loosing to the fist of thoughts
I just wanna break free of this fist
This fist of my own thoughts..
If I can just relax..
Close my eyes
& stay still
Maybe my thoughts will. & I will breathe free
