I sit alone in my room
Confined by these walls
My lips don’t curve or move
But my pain echoes in these halls.
I have none other than my shadow
To share my misery
It too keeps changing shapes and places
Disregarding and ignoring my plea
So long, so isolated I have been
I have forgotten how company feels
None I have around
Other than my heart’s squeals.
Sacred of showing it off
I just try in silence to pretend
Whilst my soul is howling inside
Praying for the pain to end.
