Too bright, too loud – a poem

Waking up groggy and with everything so bright

I can’t focus and can you get that light out of my eye?

A fake smile plastered on my face,

Conjuring all the strength I have to move and smile

I can’t think, just give me awhile.

 

Pushing myself to the limit

Feeling dead inside,

It’s been silent all day in my room

But as I step outside I feel tongue-tied.

 

My mouth opens but no voice is heard,

The world is too loud and I swallow my words

My mind is numb and empty,

I’m drowning, I can’t speak;

And so we sit there,

In awkward silence.
