Dark, empty, feelings of nothingness

Clouding your every thought,

Turning your sunny day, gloomy.

Attached to you, looming, lurking,

Following all of your actions, keeping yourself

Reserved, not speaking your thoughts.

Talking is terrifying, it's an option that is

Stopping your ideas, from coming out.

It's not intentional to stay silent,

To keep intricate, thought-provoking

Ideas at bay. Not letting yourself be

Heard, because of fear of everyone

Else. It's not anyone's intention to keep

You from speaking. Even when one has encouragement

From others. There is a shadow that holds you back

From pursuing your dreams. It knows your

Weaknesses, your fears and it uses them against you.

A shadow that is determined to keep you silent.

It follows you, because this shadow

Is you.
