Surprising how claustrophobic loneliness feels…

The mind is knotted up,

Clear thinking abandoned.

It’s that feeling of being eaten up,

From the inside,

While being swallowed whole.

Like holding a balloon that continues to inflate beyond reason

Pushing you inwards, while tipping you over.

A guilt so strong,

Because the grief is so big

And it’s not yours to mourn.

It easily could have been, though

So comes the fear. A crippling fear.

Familiar places look demonic

Everyday actions seem fatal.

It no longer feels like the solitude you seek,

Just loneliness.
