Meltdown

My nerves shatter does it really matter

Everything's a blur It's too bright my stomach turns

Closing my eyes i put my head in my heads and sounds you can't hear are driving me batty

I can't process this overwhelming world you call reality

Hearing people around me laughing makes me feel empty inside

Why is my struggle to belong so amusing

As i slowly unwind everything's coming into focus

People are standing around my desk laughing and jeering

Slowly melting into my seat wishing I hadn't broke down once again
