I hear the rustling of the leaves,
Feel the cool calming sensation
As the wind seeps through my screen
Brushing against my walls
Wrestling through my hair.
My thoughts escape,
Untamed, running through my mind.
My blanket swathes my body
Shielding me from the ray of light
Breaking through my window panes
Burning through my soul.
Depression sweeps over me
As veracity of their absence
Pounds deep within me.
My heart cries out for them,
But my body only sinks deeper.
My thoughts escape,
Untamed, running through my mind.
Tears fight their way down,
Yet the wintriness of my heart
Seems to freeze them with my eyes.
Trying to wrap my mind around the fact,
I let the world close in around me.
Darkness falls over me like an abyss.
My thoughts escape,
Untamed, through my mind.
They escape,
I am free.

I wrote this when I was home sitting in my bed thinking about the end of high school approaching and how I feel when different events in my life end, separating me from the people i've been connected to through them.
