Trapped

Trapped by barreling thoughts, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Spiraling out of control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Breath shallow, choking ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Understanding not a soul. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Smiles, happiness, excitement, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Distant memories passed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Darkness, emptiness, anxiety ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Enter, proceed, engulf, outlast ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Useless, hopeless, unloved, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s the purpose of living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Deceptively easy on the surface ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Life is cruel, unforgiving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Walls closing in swiftly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All sides, no end in sight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fear, anger, sadness, rock bottom, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Will I see the white light tonight? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The darkest darkness is impermanent, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This helplessness too shall pass. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seemingly endless permanence ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Confidence shattered like a glass. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
 
Another day arrives, this time ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A touch better than before. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Clouds parting slowly, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shining subtly the sun in store ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Resemblances of normality, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Peaking, prodding, protruding through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Deep breath, air, light, life ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A scared smile starting to brew ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The sun is out, the clouds are gone ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
thank the lucky stars. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Moving forward slowly, carefully ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But forever remain the battle scars. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
