Reality fades away, and once again I'm trapped in my mind. I'm left with my thoughts, that scare me with all their doubts. My heart hurts, not physically, but emotionally, I'm drained of liveliness, from all the negative energy in my brain. My anxieties scare away any hope that was left, and faith goes deaf. My mouth runs quiet, but my mind screams madness. Look at me and nothing you will see, but from this invisible battle I cant b r e a k free. What is this heaviness that burdens my chest? What is this fog that makes me so depressed? It comes suddenly, and engulfs me in its flames, and soon I am nothing but ashes, unable to speak of the feelings, festering beneath my skin. For this sadness is something so hard to explain, to someone who has never felt your pain.
