Like a cancer

It eats away

At your heartstrings

Until you're barren, desolate, choked

A silent scream

That no one hears

You won't let them

Like a knife it cuts straight through your lungs

The ribbons fall away

Into cracks and crevices no one sees

Until it's much too late

You can't breath

The cloud descends again

A stuffy silence that you can't shake

No matter how hard the wind blows

Your mind turns like a wheel

All topsy-turvy like a circus no one visits

Yet you are caged
