Pause

The ache that never goes away
The emptiness that is ever present
The coldness beneath the surface
I have the urge to cry, kick and scream
Yet, I don’t let myself fall too deep
I find myself staring at walls and faces
People who talk, laugh, love and live
I’m watching life move fast in front
And I realise, standing still is only mine.
