I hardly see me anymore

I hardly see me anymore
I’m far too busy filtering out
The everything that lurks beyond
The things which mean to do me harm
The air my lungs can’t do without
But I am half afraid to breath
The light I need for me to see
But eyes can hardly tolerate
The sounds stampeding through my head
But impossible to filter for their sense
The surfaces await my careful hands
But I won’t reach them out to feel

I’m so geared up to isolate
I hardly see me anymore
