The World's Gone Quiet

All the thoughts in my head

Month: November, 2015


Leaves crunch under rushing feet

Panic, fright, no more fight

Eyelids slowly shut and hearts stop

Blood flows down the street tonight.




Her face is turned up to the clouds

She blocks out all other sounds

Because the daydreams in her head

Are better than the reality she has been unwillingly force-fed

She has her back on the world

And is stuck in the past

How long will this fake happiness last?


2 a.m.

It’s 2 a.m. again

And just like the night before,

I lie awake with my phone in my hands, illuminating my face

And there’s a message prepared to be sent

But my thumb hesitantly hovers over the button

And just like the night before,

I turn my phone off instead

And stare into the darkness

Because I know that the message won’t change anything

But I wish that it could.
