Dark Cloud

It starts with darkness.

We waited in the darkness
You sat beside me
Holding my hand
I told you to leave
Leave me here to be alone
Yet you stay here
My faithful guardian

Except you’re not a guardian
You’re not protecting me from anything
You’re hurting me

Don’t you see that?
Or do you know that?
Are you sitting beside me
Holding me tight in your grip
And laughing
Because you have me exactly where you want me?

I’m screaming
And you laugh
You tell me to breathe rapidly
To cry uncontrollably
To stay awake because I don’t need sleep

Why do you get to laugh?
Why do you have this hold over me?

We aren’t friends.
We aren’t partners.
We aren’t even enemies.
We are nothing and we are everything.

Unfortunately, it’s only for a minute. Maybe an hour until I feel the pressure come back.

My thoughts are constantly restless. There is always something I’m thinking about. My mind is always anxious. defines anxiety as: “distress or uneasiness of mind caused by fear of danger or misfortune.”

I don’t feel danger exactly. I fear what every basic fear boils down to: the unknown.

I hate not knowing things. I hate empty feelings. I hate the feeling I get in my chest. I hate the shadow.
