Shadows and darkness,
never bothered me.
Thoughts invade my brain,
tears and heavy breathing,
Memories of before,
The frustration of wondering why.
Heart beating louder than a drum,
words choking me,
too deep of emotions, too many cares.
You can’t do it they say.
I hear a voice, you’re right.
I hear a voice, you’re strong.
Unable to control the depth,
Is anyone else like this?
Prisoner of my own thoughts.
I see my eyes, wide and hollow.
My limbs, numb from the trembling.
I see my face, a drop of sweat streaming down my cheek.
I can’t hear, but I don’t have to.
