Crystallized
Static and frozen in time
Fragmented
Splintered and broken inside
Isolated
By choice or by necessity? 
Entangled
Held here by my responsibility
Depressed
Why do you focus on the negative? 
Anxious
Constant fear is no way for you to live
Triggered
Yes, I know it isn’t rational
Crisis
But I have learned it isn’t safe to ask for help at all
Desperate
Scrambling for purchase on the ledge
Hopeless
It’ll never stop; I’d be better off if I was dead
Guilty
Can’t do that to my children, to my spouse
Edgy
Too much noise, gotta get out of the fucking house
Panic
I can’t go out there. I just can’t. I’ve tried. 
Pretend
Just smile and say, "I’m ok". They want the lie.
