Captured in sorrow and despair,the mind can’t be freed.
Eyes blinded by weeping, watching the distant fog of happiness disappear.
Ears buzz from the haunting echos of voices not known, too many to sort.
Mouth quieted by the bitter, metallic taste of shame.
Heart stillborn in chains of black fear.
Hands shake trying to contain; tears, shame, fear, voices from seeping out and paralyzing what remains.
