I'm shuttering

I'm shuttering

A Poem by Mbali

The more I hold the easier it gets to hide.


My pain, make me try to seek comfort from everyone who is around.

My facial smile was lost a long time back, and now it cannot be found.

My inner soul is broken, I just end searching for ways to end this numbness.

I feel like dead inside, that I am slowly being consumed by my own darkness.

I lost so much that am empty, and I can’t even fix what is left,

The plaster is ripping off my fractured heart, there is no treatment to suffice.

I hide myself inside the darkness, I blame the hole which I thought is an open door

Everything look depressing and old, I can’t hold on

I'm about to fall, I can’t see where to lean on

I am looking for a hand to hold on, morning till down

I feel empty like I'm a vacuum covered with hard shells

The tears I hold inside don't burn at my eyelids anymore;

The more I hold the easier it gets to hide.

I'm shattering, and I need a way to fix this mess that's me.

I'm trapped by my own walls and I don’t know how to make me free.

I like the expression of dreadfulness and pain, but the subtle plea makes completes it, in my humble opinion.
Thanks for sharing
