Desperation coils deep within me
pressing up and out
I am trying, trying to hold on to it
but it pushes harder
pushes back.

I want.

Desperate and wanting
I pressed harder
but am overwhelmed
and it presses harder
at my eyes as tears rush
and want is nothing like this.

Except at the worst of it.

Like now.
