Of Skin & Scars

Source: Dr. Mark Flannery
What happens when you wear the cloak of loneliness for too long?

It becomes your second skin.

So much so that people ignore it completely. Only you know how uncomfortable you are in it. Every time you face yourself in the mirror a volcano of feelings erupts in your mind. Slowly, starting from the pit of your stomach the lava travels to your chest, warming up the alleys as it goes upwards. After setting your heart on fire, it then reaches for your eyes from where the lava threatens to leak before engulfing your entire body in its heat wave... leaving you with no choice but to burn with agony in it.

The agony of being lonely. The agony of left unseen. Unheard. Unknown.
