I find myself drifting, drawn deep within myself.
Until I feel completely alone.
A horrifying kind of alone.
The kind that engulfs and terrifies.
An aloneness that I have learned to hide.
Disguised behind a bright smile and capable nature.
But inside I am crying an ocean.
Endless tears that stain my cheeks when darkness comes.
Anguish that swells and threatens to choke the life from me.
I am afraid in this unconnected place I inhabit.
So very afraid.

    I have felt like this and it is indeed frightening....... I've walked alone in a deep forest also and nothing makes you feel more alone than that .... so the picture is perfect for the feeling......

    Very sad emotive write, I do hope that the anguish disappears and you come out from your loneliness, writing can help with this as you can lose yourself in the words.
