I know I should speak
blending in becomes so boring.
Unnoticed
Invisible
I want to talk

for words to bubble up

optimistic and energetic, even if they turn out muddled 

but all my silver linings are tarnished

I'm just so exhausted
your presence has diminished my already waning energy
Sometimes I need to set up a barrier
block out the world
until my tongue has the strength
to utter mindless phrases

Very well written poem! I especially liked the personification you used in the 3rd to last line. I look forward to seeing more of your work :) Please return me this small favour and check out my most recent poem! XOXO
