I scream, I shout, I cry with ragged breaths.

But all I hear is silence in the ever gripping light of day.

Darkness begs with a soothing smile, a welcoming laugh that makes me hurl.

Tears flow and I wipe. More replace and I'm losing this fight.

My soul is being ripped apart, slowly and painfully.

Nobody tries to stop it, only help it.

My laughs fade, stolen by the bitter winds.

Smiles forced and faked.

I'll pretend that I'm alright so people won't suspect.

Hang back and soon I'm a ghost.

I'm lost, I'm alone.

What's more I'm scared I'll never move past this fragile state.
