Call Halt

Hiding away from

the world outside,

alone with the thoughts

I find hard to hide.

Light streams in through

a gap in the curtains,

to narrow for the eyes

of any passing person.

Life is being endured

and not enjoyed

any sense of hope has

long been destroyed.

The voices in my head

have been sent to demoralise,

to upset family and friends

and leave me ostracised.

No matter how much

I plea for them to stop,

they are relentless

and only call halt when I drop.
