The thoughts jumble and mix in my head

spikes of emotion light up- one, two, three- the list goes on.

Not knowing what is inside of me

a barrier set between me, myself, and I.

Butterflies do not show fear

that one is much deeper than voiced.

Falling apart at the seams

chips- to cracks- to breaks.

Hidden on the inside it festers

thousands of teardrops lost in the dark.

Alone, invisible, unwanted, unneeded,

the words repeat themselves.

“Get out” I sing against the pain

“Shut up” it whispers in return

“Get out” once more

“You idiot” responds new

Swirling, swimming, weightlessly overlooked.

A fight one sided against myself.

Two voices ring true as one.
