Gravity

I just want to talk
to someone,
to say the truth
and stop feeling
this weight on my eyes.
No,
I just want
to talk to you.
Someone won’t do.
It has to be you
who I tell these
heart wrenching stories,
who helps me release
all this gravity
pressing me
to the ground.
I wish I could hear
your voice or
read your words or
reach out and touch you.
My head hurts and
my eyes are so full
but they refuse
to unload.
I can’t focus
on what needs
to be done,
what I must do.
And my ears
are filled up
with bells and
white noise and
only your voice
can stop it.
And I can’t scream
or weep
or talk.
I’m just here
and wishing
I was there.
