When Words Elude

Sometimes it’s as if a switch has been turned off,
Blood pumps, lungs expand and contract as they should.
But only involuntary actions occur.
When brought to choice, decisions fail.
Thoughts struggle to get free from bonds,
holding them back
with fear, suspicion, disgust or disbelief.
For protection,
the mind suspends. 
Thoughts no longer flow freely
as a companion on our journey through days.
There is nothing keeping us company in the quiet moments of rest.
Instead, moments are filled with hollow echoes of emptiness.
