And dreadfully heavier.

Let me share how it feels,
When you want to see,
Yet, your eyelids closed,
Tight and heavy,

When you want to smile,
Yet, your lips tightened,
Pale and weightless,

When you want to cry,
Yet, your tears dried,
The ache stays,

When you want to stand,
Yet, your legs fell,
Weakened,

When you want to speak,
Yet, your voice lost,
Silent and still,

When you want help,
You lost to exhaustion,
And overwhelming pressure,

All but a small taste,
Because it runs deeper,
And dreadfully heavier.
