Lonely are the Brave

I’ve lost myself in this world
A world with no barrier between reality and illusion
Where the darkest corners of my mind come alive
And my isolation is amplified

Every little noise causes my skin to prickle
From the creak of the door to the quiet yet shrill wind
I feel the raw panic stuck inside my throat
Painfully clawing its way out
But I hold it in
I have to

Because giving in to this fear
Is the same as giving up on myself
With this thought engraved into my heart
I trudge through
And with every step, I feel stronger
There will always be this fear inside me
But it will never hold me back
