Hush Now

The voices get so loud

Echoing in my head

The worst part is

It’s no one else--just me instead


Inside I start to scream

Words flying indiscernibly

But the feelings are still there

Sitting without a name


My throat catches in a silent shriek

Around me, ancient floorboards creak

I wish I was in a rocking chair

To better hide this despair


But hush now


Please just hush now


Hush now


I’m here
