Alone Among You

I feel trapped

by my melancholy.

It is a cage.

A partition

separating me from life.

I am encased

in dioptase,

four translucent tinted walls

of a stormy green colour,

obscuring my view.

Or is it tears?

My face is wet now,

mascara streaked cheeks.

I only want to live

without this ache.

Come and pull me

out of my head,

lift the weight of my world

from me,

for I am so tired

of being alone

among you.
