Lost and sometimes not trying to be found

Afraid to look around

Feet firmly placed on sinking ground

Just a shell

A deep well

Of regret and pain

Awaiting the reign

That will carry me to safety

Replacing the uncertainty and shame

With a new name

Internalize when you realize

Only pain lies on the outside


this roller coaster ride

of relentless emotional turmoil as you struggle to find

to connect

to what lies beyond the veil


the art of losing and accept this titanic fail

disengage from the world

Separate, release the latch

Part ways with all emotion

As to survive is to detach.
