Pain in a mind racing with fears and anxiousness. The fury that exists just beneath the skin which builds with every inhaled breathe. Lying awake each night hot, agitated by the density of the air hoping only that sleep will creep in and mind become quiet. Restlessness battles, intruding thoughts, and passing time moves ever more towards the dawn. Beyond the flooding thoughts a pounding rhythm relentlessly drives the pain closer to the minds precipice. The deafening silence offers no release to a place of solace.
