Too Afraid To Speak

Carrying around the weight of the world
Lost in problems
Wanting to be there
But not having the time
Energy spiraling downwards
Lost in the swarm
Too afraid to tell
Too afraid of reactions
Not wanting to worry or disappoint
No longer feeling indestructible
Every move, every click, every groan
A remind of the failure
The life I lost, the friends who fled
Decisions that were made.
Wanting to protect
And all it did was harm…

Moving on, getting on,
Settling down, holding the tears
The fear, the grief and lose.
Burying it all away
Deep within my soul
Another time another place
Another life…
