She woke up breathless

She woke up breathless
tears socking in her eyes…
and the pillow beneath her
couldn’t handle all the cries

Disillusioned by a nightmare
that hasn’t appeared to her in years

Was it because her life has crumbled
and the years spent has proven inept?
Was it because she missed the life
she no longer could accept

Being imprisoned in her own doing
her own choices her own failing

She woke up breathless
and all she needed was some air
sometime to think and grasp
the reasons for her despair
