Broken Solitude

I used to think
That my whole life was finished
My entire world diminished,
And I would disappear in time
With every blink.
I closed my eyes
And made a crowded room seem lonely
Made myself my one and only
And fade away
Using darkness as disguise.
I tried to hide
From everything that used to hurt me
Anyone who would desert me
And from anything
I tried to feel inside.
I felt contagious
Breaking everything I touch
Knowing the world is not enough
I closed the book,
But life keeps turning pages.
I cried for help
And no one else could hear me
I wouldn't let you near me,
And I was left begging God
To save me from myself.
