Swallow my soul

by remembertoexhale

Do you know what it feels like to be trapped?
when you can hardly breathe
always on the verge of hyperventilating
or exploding

Do you know what it feels like to have red ants in your pants?
what if you couldn’t take them off?
you would want to rip them apart
not caring if you’re exposed for the entire world to see
but at least there is air
and you can breathe
deeply

Do you know how it feels to owe people?
Do you know what it feels like to owe a country?
it feels like you owe them your soul
it would be nice if the year of jubilee would happen for me

I need something to swallow me whole
otherwise the world will eat my soul
