I feel the heaviness of an unknown burden

Mostly in solitude, with nothing to disturb our intimate moments

Drifting among the cellophane wraiths

They pass by and through me

With a rush of roaring winds

That leaves the sting of icy desperation

So intense I clutch at the walls

Of this hallway

Plaster under my nails

Sweat tickling my spine

I fight to catch the ragged gasps that escape

And I catch myself wondering

Why?

Oh, would I could I dissolve into this wall
