Im alone, always alone in the corner

Voices surround me in the corner

Cornered by voices!

What do I do? The noise, It is everywhere

Whispers keep me back like a brick wall

My heart stops in fear

Where do I go? What do I do?

I run but it follows me

Where is safety?

I try to run but I cant

The fear surges through my body

As I wait!
