Tunnelled through my brain
Scratched away at my skull
Hollowed out my insides
Sucked me dry of energy
Burrowed through my marrow
Pierced through my skin.
Now ugly outside as I felt inside,
I ran for shelter.
In the security of open arms and broken silence,
I finally closed my eyes.
Restless, turbulent, but nevertheless, sleep.
In the morning, to my horror, I saw the people around me
I closed my eyes.
This was written after a very vivid dream I had of this happening. I used to be afraid of seeking help because I believed I would hurt the people around me.
