Thick fog.
Everything before me
overshadowed by a haunted gray.
Walking through the cool mist is terrifying-
can you see me?
This film of dew is hard to breathe.
Each step I take,
the moves I make,
trap me inside this glass case.
There's nothing I can do.
Try to speak into the darkness
and it blurts back its response-

The author's comments:
This poem is an introduction to a series of poems that come from last years diary. It was a year filled with drama and this poem deomonstrates how I'm desperate to get my story out. The poems will be like a story and this one is meant to present. Flashbacks will occur! Reviewers: I'm more concerned with how the poem related to you; in my case, I was (am lonely) but it may vary between people. Also, constructive criticism is accepted, as long as its not like It sucked, take it down. Thank you for reading!
