Off guard

Louwelyn started writing poems since third grade. Writing has always been and will always be her passion and source of inspiration.

Off Guard

Sadness.
It’s hunting my heart.
I felt agony every moment in my life.
I am awfully sad.
So sad I can’t even breathe.
I force air through my lungs and still I can’t breathe.
Suffocating.
Save me!

Pain.
Excruciatingly painful.
My heart is numb.
An extreme feeling is haunting me this instant.
My heart continues to bleed.
Numbness disappears as far as the horizon at dawn.

Doubt.
All the things I believe in are only make believes.
The things I built for perfection is far from coming true.
Inexistent.
Out of this world.
Perfection is a state so hard to attain.
As it turns out, impossible of achievement.

Realization.
It suddenly hits me. Hard.
All the things I believe in are only make believes.
Shattered at one blow.
Broken into a million tiny bits and pieces.
I cannot glue it back.

The hell it hurts!
I WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD!!

I liked how you started each stanza with a power word and defined it for yourself.
