//-->v. tr. si·lenced, si·lenc·ing, si·lenc·es

2. To curtail the expression of; suppress: silencing all criticism; silenced their opponents

I think I have reached that point
Exhausted by all of these obstacles
Fatigue plagues me and Monday morning only brings tired eyes and wishes for the end of the week
Solitude it now all I seek
Making plans to be alone
In a place where nothing is expected and nobody wants anything
Shut down
I will remain silent until tomorrow
Or maybe the next day
Whichever day equals the end of all of this
No more trying
No more fighting
I refuse to revisit the pain of the past and I will not allow this weight to force me to my knees
All around voices make demands on me
Sometimes becoming cryptic and not fully explaining but still expecting me to be everything that I always was
I have figured out what these messages mean but refuse to take action because I don’t want to have to figure it out when the source of the confusion could easily speak plainly
Or leave me be
