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.
