Do you know solitude?
True loneliness….. The kind which beguiles as well as diminishes onself?
Where no matter your surroundings, isolation traps you inside a transparent shell.
You talk, interact, work, play…… You live.
Exist, but don’t enjoy.
Age, but don’t feel wiser.
It’s like a everything is in echo, every sense not ‘feeling’ the initial experience
but picking up on the aftereffects.
Like you’re living 2 seconds behind reality, trying to predict what will happen,
yet still appearing as if you’re repeating the same mistakes
whereas the screams of the mind unsubtly prove you were just too slow to react to what came.
Knowing that all it would take is a little self belief.
Suffice to say we all believe in hope.
