Loneliness drowns me as the heavy echoes tremble in the streets.
Waves of tears erupt at my gaze.
Blurry visions of loss and confusion
cloud closed eyes.
Today, I am afraid;
I mustn’t give in —
weak and helpless mind,
I scream in my silence and stomp while I lay.
In a hole,
I hold my breath.
Through the deepest of oceans;
still, calm waters are near.
