Escape

It’s all blur, it’s crowded.
Everyone has a voice
And every voice is saying something.
Some are shouting
Some are whispering
Some are talking
All at the same time.
It’s difficult to concentrate on one voice.
I tried hard to listen to them
To understand what’s happening
But I can only hear the voice, not the words.

Suddenly anxiety took over me.
I thought to close my eyes and calm myself
I shut my eyes tight to not get distracted by these voices.
But as soon as I close my eyes, I realized
This chaos is inside me.
Those blurred faces, their vibrant clothes
And those deep dark voices
They are all inside me
All the time.
Those voices are louder now
Screaming
Talking
Whispering
Chanting
Still making no sense.

I am terrified.
I am tired.
I want to scream.
And I want to sleep.
I wish they fade out
But it’s going to stay.
I wish I could shut them out
But there’s no escape.

  1. This is amazing. You captured that feeling of chaos so well. There are so many voices within us, and it’s definitely so hard to quiet them sometimes. Amazing job, and I hope you are able to find peace! πŸ‘β€

  2. Oh great job here Yeshu! Love how you captured the feeling of being hijacked by ones voices inside. Powerful words.. we sure can’t listen to our mind that rattles on or we’d be a tongue tied, anxiety ridden mess! β€οΈπŸ€—β€οΈ love and hugs!

  3. Relatable I agree, sometimes we wanna shut everything and run. I practice it so often.

    I loved a few lines a lot-

    “And those deep dark voices

    A lot of meaning and a lot of relatability in the lines.
    How I so missed reading you, I am glad to read something so beautiful ✨
