Spreading Thin

IMG_20170730_063031_547

I’m breaking 
I’m failing 
I’m tearing at the seams 
I’m hopeless
I’m trying 
 growing more tired it only seems
Can’t hold myself together 
Can’t talk with any skill
Can’t get through the day
With any extra time to fill
I’m running
I’m planning 
Trying not to break down
 I’m working
I’m grasping
No comfort to be found 
I’m fauxing a smile
That’s getting worse every day
I’m trying to breathe without crying 
Trying to keep monsters at bay
But every day they seep closer
I’m closer to giving up
Just need some time to rest
Just need some time to slump
Need some time for myself
Time I’ll never have
that time doesn’t exist 
In my world or my head
Need as much time as i can savor
For my dreams and my goals
When in reality I’m failing 
Dying, becoming skin and bones
I’m running myself ragged
Running myself sick 
Trying too hard for everything 
Spreading myself thin
