I couldn’t even breathe properly,

An unwanted feeling which was making my heart too heavy.

It was suffocating me,

A feeling of not knowing what to do?

I hated being questioned, probably because I didn’t have an answer to anything.

It seemed like I was filled with darkness,

There was light all around me, but I couldn’t feel it.
