50: Putting Feelings Into Words

My stomach's tied in knots, there's a lump in my throat.

I look up, at the skies and at the stars. I blink just enough times to keep the tears from welling up and falling down my cheeks.

And my heart, it weighs a ton on my chest.

"If I only gave my best..."

Cruel thoughts run through my head, like trains right on track and schedule.

And I repeat the same mistakes—like a fool.

The worst part is feeling lonely, with no one to hold me.

At least not while I'm in this state, where I don't even recognize me.
