I shake so softly

I can feel my heart beat

It beats so slowly now

But it thumps

And it thumps

So loudly


I can feel my hand twitch

I can't control the way it moves

It shakes so softly now


I can tell

That I'm not really in control anymore

That there's only so little I can do


I can tell

That my body is tired

That it doesn't want to put up a fight


But how can I wait

How can I stand still

How can I just look on in anger?


I am unable to move

Unable to change

I am unable to do


I will stand in this spot

Listening to my heart

Watching my hand

And forgetting the past -


I will stand in this spot

And look on in anger

And watch as it all falls apart.



Very interesting.
