leading a life to please others.

shadowed

I'm drowning with a smile.

A misted darkness slithers through my fingertips,

A misted darkness slithers through my fingertips, twisting and twining around my forearms,

A misted darkness slithers through my fingertips, twisting and twining around my forearms, tightening and confining around my throat,

A misted darkness slithers through my fingertips, twisting and twining around my forearms, tightening and confining around my throat, silencing the mounting pressures.

I'm crying without a tear.

A breathless weight lies atop my windpipe,

A breathless weight lies atop my windpipe, asphyxiating my ascending ambition

A breathless weight lies atop my windpipe, asphyxiating my ascending ambition and aiding

A breathless weight lies atop my windpipe, asphyxiating my ascending ambition and aiding hypoxiation of my high hopes.

I'm laughing without a sound.

The burdensome expectations slump my shoulders,

The burdensome expectations slump my shoulders, my individuality inexplicably caving,

The burdensome expectations slump my shoulders, my individuality inexplicably caving, my agency miserably decaying,

The burdensome expectations slump my shoulders, my individuality inexplicably caving, my agency miserably decaying, my will is despicably disintegrating.

I'm surviving in a shadow.
