Alone




Lost in thoughts and emotions 
Tired of pretending everything is ok 
I’m not ok 
I’m lost in the wilderness that is this new normal 
Alone 
Locked in the dark recesses of my mind 
Locked inside the box that has developed around me 
Locked out of happiness and joy 
Locked from the progression of life 
Alone 
Crying endlessly mourning profusely 
When will this season end, when will my beginning begin again? 
Hope is a dream unreachable, a goal unfulfilled 
Hope is a falsehood a faint point of recognizable deceit 
Is it all a dream? 
Or is the reality the dream we couldn’t believe to be true? 
Is….
