A Poem: In The Silence

i sit in the silence
observing the rise and fall of my chest with every breath
but i am lifeless


the air fills my lungs
but i am gasping for air

i sit in the silence

attune to the aches and pains that circulate through my body
it is a reminder that each moment is a struggle


rest does not solve anything
it will always remain

i sit in the silence

caught in my head and i cannot get out

so i detach

despair lingers and points out the hopelessness

that has become my life

    Wow- Megan, I can relate so much to the feeling in your poem and I want you to know that you have a beautiful way of expressing it. I also want you to know that it does NOT have to always feel like this. The road to recovery is hard indeed, the hardest thing I have ever done. But it is SOOOOOO worth it I promise. You can find your way out as well. Sending you strength and love.
