Mute Monster

by Tasha   Jun 17, 2017

I shouldn't be left in silence
It gives me too much time to think
Being alone with my thoughts can be violent
The quiet pushes me to the brink
I don't want to think of tomorrow
The past is holding me back
It brings me nothing but sorrow
This hush is keeping me trapped
I wish I could break out of this stillness
I'm screaming aloud in my head
This tranquility feels more like an illness
The more this Mute Monster is fed.
