The weight was heavy with frustration, anger, doubt on a bar made of pain

but I benched it until failure

Exhausting my muscles

Tired of adulting

Tired of carrying my burdens on my shoulders

because I carried yours on my back

Tired of begging for the smallest thing

I napped away my pain to get some relief

And when I woke up

Unsure if I was dreaming or existing

you were gone

while I was left figuring out

Were you ever here?
