Taken By A Fear
I can’t write
Or put it down
And I’m left with nothing
not even sound
Hollow cries in a vacuum
of an empty room
where no one cares or listens
or is understood.
Questions circle and go nowhere
to answers hiding or probably just not there
Past a point where you can even care
Cold heartless fear starts to take you in
and you question the roads you've taken
even back to where you'd begin
Thoughts that take you twisting
into a hole
Away from the sun and life and everything you'd known
But don't forget it's you who gets to choose
and not to fight is probably worse than
And what losing is - is something that you
meaningless nonsense you made up
in your mind..
If the road is bad there is always
And to keep reaching and struggling
is not such a bad way to spend your day
Pick it up and be yourself
try again and be OK
that you had to try again.
You were gone maybe
taken by a fear
but it was driven away
when your thoughts became clear.
