When it was time for me to speak
My voice went out on strike
It decided not to show up
I opened my mouth
Nothing came out
My throat was so dry
No water could help
Every time I opened
My mouth
I choked on air
I was struggling with each breath
All I could push out
Was a squeak
A little peep
I felt like
A bad Verizon commerical
Entrapped me
I kept hearing
In my head
Can you hear me now
By their expression
They could not
I was frustrated
I was panicked
How could
Something I do everyday
Such an easy task
Be so hard now
My chest hurt
My throat dry
My head is spinning
I need a nap
I am so tired
I am tapping out
Hopefully tomorrow
Will be a better day
