Instead


I don't want to have to be strong anymore,
This burden is heavy and my arms are weak,
Biting my lip and clenching my teeth,
So I won't cry, Hold it all inside.
Wanting to fall, don't remember how,
Look around and realize I am already there.
Locking monsters up tight in my head-
I choke on my tears-
But then swallow, Instead.
