It wasn’t instant, I know, I’ve seen it before,
I’ve felt it before, but ignored it,
Just like before,
It was slow but the effect was heavy.
It was like a thousand ton was suddenly put on my shoulders,
Unable to move forward unless I removed it
And I couldn’t.
It made my feet heavy and unsteady,
My body unresponsive,
My mind was not listening to me.
It was like shouting at a reflection on the mirror
When you know that only the real one can move.
But even so, you continue to shout
Hoping that one day,
Your voice would finally be heard
So that you could finally be free
But for now, you’ll just sit and wonder
About the life
You used to have
And wanted back.
