If I Close My Eyes

by nerdletech

Everything is loud

And heavy

And I am at the tipping point

Of my capacity to bottle things up

If I just lie down

Close my eyes

Put on some soft music

Maybe I'll forget that I am caving

Under stress

Under fear

Under the weight of everything that I can't let go

If I close my eyes

It doesn't exist

None of it

If I close my eyes

I can breathe again

I won't feel the need to scream

At the world that so fiercely tries to attack me

I won't choke on the voices that stick in my throat

I won't try to peel my skin

Like I am a bird in a cage just trying to get free

If I just close my eyes

I will be okay
