FREE WRITING

10
apologies run like a river through my head,
day after day.
and yet
i don't know what to say.
the words die on my tongue
because they're never good enough.

the fear gnaws at me
in the form of ravenous butterflies.
and they whisper little lies,
to lead my mind astray.

everything about you
flits through my mind.
night and day, awake or asleep,
without a moments break.

each waking night,
drags on like a lasting punishment.
hours on end,
sleepless.

i never know
the right time,
or
what to say,
so i write about it.
a silent cry,
to tame my insanity.
at least
for a little while

    Wow. This piece hit me hard. Everything about it, from the words you used to the spacing of it...dang. It hit especially hard because I can totally relate. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful work. And thank you for supporting my efforts in getting FoxLilly106 back. Not everyone thought so, and they made sure to tell me.....
    Anywho's, one of my favorite pieces from all the ones I have ever read. Incredible!

    Replying: Missing you! My anxiety has been really bad since I can’t really talk to my friends face to face. I find myself loaded in school and meetings and other stuff that I don’t really ever want to do. It’s a struggle, but I’m making it through. How about you? How’s this whole COVID-19 thing treating you?
