The Absolute Void

It is very disconcerting,
To wake up screaming,
Screaming out at the very top of your lungs,

When you remember,
That you were screaming for a while in that dream,

β€”Was I screaming out loud that whole time?

The subject of the dream,
Always the same,
A voice unheard,
By those close to me,

A voice in immense pain,
At the limit of endurance,
Yet a voice which knows,
It is only being resented.

  1. It is unsettling if:
    Being who you are is not enough
    The truth does not matter and fall on deaf ears
    I pray that your identify is strong in God given wisdom and beauty and the truth sets you free.

    1. I was doing so badly for a while I was nowhere near able to be myself, there was no connection to myself in what I could achieve in the day. But then I was improving with medication, meditation and therapy.

      “The truth does not matter and fall on deaf ears”
      This was also the case, even as I made progress. The progress was denied.

      I’ve been regaining my identity in the last 6 months :).


    1. 😨 yeah I can’t imagine being in that situation! Would be terrifying too in a different way.


    1. Yes! My first thought was to get up and write about it, but it gradually became less urgent :). It’s difficult when you can’t just discuss it with someone

    1. Oh man, I’m sorry that you’ve experienced anything similar!

      But that is very rewarding to know if it helped somebody else in a small way. Thank you for telling me! It’s very encouraging.
