"I never knew grief felt so much like fear, I can't stop swallowing." CS Lewis

The deepest sadness
You can't share
Shame them not
I hear
It's all your fault

You gave too much
Dreamed to big
Expected too much
Didn't do enough
Did too much
Too much 
Not enough

It's gone now
Grieve alone 
Puff goes the smoke up your ass
"You're great" they said 
Your dreams are dead
They aren't yours to mourn 
Hang up that damn phone
This isn't your life
You just pay for it
