'Engulf'


Out there alone
Even though you are in a crowd
Your voice drowned out
By the screams of others
Do you fight to be heard? 
Or do you voice your protest in a different way 
Not everyone will know you are close to giving up
When you smile your usual smile 
And you remain the positive pretense they are accustomed to
Only the one who knows your core 
Will know - 
Will cast you a lifeline
Will hold you close in reassurance

I've recently experienced this, dear. It's shocking how few will hear a cry for help and will respond. Lovely write. Hugs
