Destination Unknown

The hallway is endless,

I can not see its end

Does it even have one?

The walls high,

the ceiling low,

I am bathed in darkness.

It blinds me.

The hallway has no doors,

no exits,

it must be travelled.

Vision limited,

no connection

to anything,

only the journey forward.

I feel my lonely,

it surrounds me

a reminder

there is only I.

No we,

no they,

no one.

My heart aches

with sadness,

a pain so deep,

it clouds my thinking.

Why keep going?

Is it worth it?

Will they see me?

Will they hear me?

Will they feel me?

Am I worth it?

My hands flat on the walls,

I pull myself forwards.

I don't want to,

but my body won't listen.

It moves forward.

Why?

Usually quick to answer,

my brain is silent.

It's answer spoken not in words,

but the silence.

Trapped,

alone,

tired,

I fight the tears.

The pain,

the dread,

the anguish.

I surrender

to the prison

of my loneliness,

my isolation,

my grief.

No exit.

The path must be walked

to a

destination unknown.
