Staring in the face of defeat

Silence is a strange companion

It makes one’s thoughts fill the vacancy it creates.

These six walls that contain me,

At times they seem so distant

So far away

And I feel so incredibly small.

But other times they constrict me,

Confine my thoughts and strangle my emotions,

The emptiness is suffocating.

I’m still so conflicted,

So passionate yet so numb.

Desensitized and lost.

Trying my hardest to escape escapism

And finding out I must face it head on.
