Hidden Torment

The world rushes past

I sit alone;

Lost, scared;

Fading fast

 

Friends joke and chit chat

I nod quietly;

Mute, numb;

Feeling flat

 

The kids laugh and play

I force a smile;

Hiding

The pain away

 

Longing to feel joy

Desperate, hoping;

Torment

Wont destroy

My Monster

It washes over

Quietly manipulating

Every thought and every hope747fed6c59955ca57478a01921e3014e

 

It rushes through

Joyfully tangling

Every emotion and every dream

 

It brings darkness

Shadows dancing into

Every partition and beam of light

 

It cackle’s gleefully

Painfully dismissing

Every triumph and every love

 

It knocks on your shoulder

Claws at your throat

Every muscle and every breath

 

It encase’s and engulfs

Wraps its claws tightly around

Dragging you down, deep and alone
