Be Silent

Back here again.
Wanting to disappear.
Can't understand why
anyone would want to socialize.
Except with family.
Family doesn't count.
I can always see family.
I believe they can see me.

I want to do my job
because I have to do my job.
At the moment,
I can't understand why
people want to be light
and make with the chit chat.

I am trapped by the future.
Shoved into a box.
Afraid for the country.
Afraid for the world.

It's actually comfortable in the box.
Safe. Silent. Just me.
Pay attention.


  1. wow. i relate to so much of this. i hate chit chat. i feel trapped sometimes, too. and sometimes i just want to be alone but want family around me at the same time, if that makes sense. Life can be very complicated.

    1. Oh that makes sense, Judy! After a day at work where there is much chit chat to be waded through and tons of real work to do, I came home and fell asleep for almost two hours! I would rather be in the box. Thanks for reading and commenting.

  2. Ah, the box that fear built...I know it well.

    1. Hmmm, it feels safe, and maybe it is safe in some ways. The real danger with that kind of safety is how much you miss of what is going on outside the box...
