The Confines of Fear

Running away is easier
Leaves a different mess
I can’t fake smiles anymore
It gets old quick
And wears on my soul
This air is thick
I feel it pushing on me
But the wind racing through the window
    chases it away
The speed surpasses all the things that
    eat away at me
Just the sound of Indie Rock
And the thoughts in my head
        That fade slowly
                Until I silence them away
Maybe if I pretend they don’t exist they’ll really be gone…
Even for a minute
     I need some solace
Nope, that didn’t work
Just focus on the road
And the trees whizzing by
I don’t want to be here anymore
I’m tired of being scared
     Of myself
      Of others
       Of being trapped
        Of my soul’s hunger
I need to break free from these confines of fear
