Festering thoughts on a bus ride home.
Trapped in a mindset of fantasy
My screams they fall to deafened ears
Alone in a mind of oil
Staining all who brave my touch
Familiar faces soaked in anxiety
They stare with memories i have forgotten
These glossy eyes that fear closing... moving.... shifting.... seeing
Worlds will fall
Perceptions will alter
These words are caught in my throat
How do I say hello?
these strangers surround me
And all I see is a desperate
Craving of escape to
In all of us
Forgetting why we're here, or unaware of how to come back.
Desperately clinging to the ground as it cracks
I can see between these lines that people fall through
The game we're all playing
I want to scream out
But my throat swells
Words fall from my eyes without sound
I can see these strangers screaming from the bottom.
Illness seeping through the cracks
I Stare down
But I drown them with every glance.
Making oceans of unspoken phrases.
They breathe me in.
