My ribs find difficulty 
In not letting it slip
Through the gaps
In its cage.

The pressure
Drips blood from soaked bones,
Filling my lungs.
I breathe in my brokenness,
And I feel

Heavy hearted. 

My body floods,
Becomes overwhelmed
And I begin to panic -
What's going to hold me?

You wrap your arms around me
Try to carry my weight, yet under it
They snap and break.
I drag you down
And our love feels

Heavy hearted.

  3. This is reminiscent of a recent friendship that snapped, under a heavy weight of suffering.
