The hallways reek of drama
blatant voices carry through steep stairways
the crowding of inescapable glee permeates my thoughts
something to fill the void
the void of hopelessness, isolation,
Amidst a classroom of peers
Can anyone hear me?
Does anyone see me?
Can’t someone empathize with my melancholy?
I succumb to my onslaught of feelings
allowing them to fester further into the void
Unable to dispel the pain
that lacerates through my heart.
