Taking This to Heart

Taking This to Heart

A Poem by Bridger Hall

Sometimes you just can´t take it.


I feel my ribs tremble as I scream on the inside

Keeping the fake smile on my face

Only to keep everyone from the truth


I want someone to know me

I want someone to tell me it´s okay

I need you to settle this voice inside me


Because it wants to murder my heart

It's very real. Death defyingly so. Maybe I understand it in a way not meant to be. But I understand this. This feeling, so haunting and powerful. So ready to eat you, so aching so frightening. So undying. This is beautiful.
