Why are you so quiet?

PC-Google

Why are you quiet? They ask
Chewing a pile of blank thoughts
I turn around slowly.

Tipping from a puffy cloud
to another, they conceive
But,
I walk on a shoe in which 
a pebble is stuck between my toe
s

Yes, it hurts
for every step I take
Neither it leaves me.

Maybe I chaw silence 
for every meal and quaff numbness
That’s why most of my words croak 
in between my tongue and lips
where the remaining
dethaw during my shower.

They are busy swiping between left and right
I gaze at the blank screen
unaware that my mobile enfeebled last night

Why are you quiet? they ask
You can’t hear the scream 
Standing at the shore, I smile

In a fast moving world
I stand still
looking for a less crumpled paper.

I bleed to pacify my hormones
and my nib to assuage my soul. 

Depression they name
But, I’m killing death
to breathe under water.

      2. 17? I feel ashamed being 25 and saying Homesick haha..
        I hope things will work out.
        But being an introvert it’s actually a stunt to mingle.
