Choked

I want to run
I want to hide
I want to be at peace
I want to escape this trauma

The trauma that haunts me
chokes me, drives me crazy
when my expectations were shattered
and my hopes crushed

The trauma that never leaves me
oh, no not that physical agony
but the ache within
is what is unendurable.

I want to run
I want to hide
I want to be at peace
I want to escape this pain The pain my heart bears all the time
the pain that peeks from behind the smile.
The pain unseen, unnoticed
or maybe overlooked!

I want to run
I want to hide
I want to be at peace
Peace forever…
