Sat alone, you can hear it coming,
Creeping in, laughter loud and clear
Sucking happiness away from you.
Screaming at it, does no good
Screaming for help, no one hears
Yet you feel yourself getting lost, falling.
A hole of darkness it is
where light is rarely seen,
sounds are rarely heard
yet – it isn’t an empty space.
It’s a packed with people
Too scared to talk or move, enduring
Silently hoping one day this will be over.
You there, smiling
saying it’s in your head
It’s not for attention
It’s not for sympathy
Love’s all we need.
