A world so lonely Some become shells Of their former selves
Afraid to share Their simplest thoughts For fear of rejection
Inside, a whirlwind Of words and emotion Insecurity mounting
A war of the mind Chaotic and loud But invisibly so
No words Are spoken Not a flicker of the eye
No signs Of a light being on Nobody home
The secret fight With one's own mind Unable to express
A ghost, they appear To be empty and hollow Nothing.
