After a Long While


- perspective :  consequences of severe prolonged isolation... 


What appears in these writings

Is all of the unspoken thoughts

My quietness won't let me get out.


So, contrary to what may seem to be,

This apparent self-absorption doesn't

Describe my usual nature, way of being.


Whether about myself or other topics,

Talking is something I rarely do, plus

The opportunities are more than scarce.


And now, the problem is that I spend way

Too much time alone with my head,

Day in, day out, on my own in my room


With little to no exterior stimuli to

Spark my attentions elsewhere, so

The thoughts just turn on themselves.


The days meld into the nights, on a loop,

And everything is simply stalled as well,

The need to find outside input's screaming.


Resolving these isolation issues of mine

Is something that's been worked on for years,

Traumas have improved, but not enough yet.


So, this is the only space I have,

And right now, the only people

Around are you who come to read.


You help me get a sense that I exist.

They often tell us to journal for our 'sanity', but I have to agree, there's nothing like knowing that others are listening.

Maybe, this apply's to many of us
For being such makes us the writers
That we are - just thinking out loud
With words.
