i need space.

i need space to let my thoughts swim,

so i don’t feel so trapped in the embrace of life.


because it holds tight,

it’s almost suffocating.

and it illuminates;

that blinding bright light.


so i close my eyes.


i close my eyes to the bright light.

i close my eyes to life.

but even through my eyelids,

it pierces through.

tearing my space apart.


and without space i have no room to breath.

although sometimes i don’t want to,

i need to breath.
