Oxygen

Physical health issues have taken a toll on me, most of the times I’m unable to breathe. I feel as if there is something heavy in my chest that’s blocking my airways. Anxiety and depression have also kicked in because my mental health couldn’t stand the desperation caused by my physical health. I can’t breathe,…

Anxious

Man always crushes my hopes but I’ve loopholes. The most important one is me being a human being. Such a petty fragile human! This is self-pity. This is me writing while I face a writer’s block. I’ve gone deep into this nasty abyss called life and this chasm does not let me write. It’s stripping…
