I Retreat

I never mean to hurt feelings. I retreat. It's what I do.
Unable to use my voice. A silent scream. Choking on emotions, too dark to share.

I hear conversations sparsely participating. Speaking when spoken to. But, I feel so far away. Buried so deep inside. A scream, whimper or cry. No one can hear me here.

The pressure to be overwhelms me. I retreat.
Further and further inside myself. Watching the world through a small window. A light at the end of the tunnel. But I'm sinking. Cool glass surface calms me. It's quiet here.
