The sea of people swarming
seem oblivious to my feelings
which swell, inundating my soul.
The tussle continues unabated
my thoughts scream yet,
the deaf ears do not heed
each one, engrossed in their bubble.
My mind plays diabolic games,
I wallow in guilt and self pity.
The unsaid words are imprisoned
within the walls of despondency
refusing to let the ray of light enter
before spiraling into an emotional abyss.
