sometimes

sometimes
i feel like
tearing my chest
wiiiiiide open

because
that way
you could see my soul
gasping
in the great expanse

sometimes
i feel like
staring into
the sun

and speaking out
in the tongue
in which it speaks to me

sometimes
i want to scream
until i cough up blood
and phlegm

so that
for a moment
you would all
understand

and then
the feeling subsides
and i return back to me
