Flicker

The lights flicker overhead,
And they’re oddly relatable.
My life feels light,
then dark,
then light.
Like my heart beat was turned off,
Then on again.
And again.
A fluorescent buzz fills my ears,
Forcing my thoughts to grow louder.
I’d give anything for a switch to turn them off.
Or for a voice like yours to drown them out.
A voice whispering comforting things,
A voice sharing the day-to-day,
To silence the constant barrage of worry playing on repeat in my skull.
They tell me to get over it,
Focus on something different,
But it’s so hard to focus when the sound is so damn loud.
The lights flicker overhead,
And I worry about the day they finally go out.
