Internal Torment

This is my first entry to Micro Bookends. The challenge was to create a story 90-110 words that begins with Silent and ends with Film and incorporates the picture prompt.

Silent and still I smile, fighting thought and heart. My mind, an invisible prison, keeps me locked away in plain sight. No one sees the struggle I face daily as I wind tiredly round and round stopping only when I reach a dead end. Some days there seems no point in continuing; I will be forever lost on the twisting paths. Images haunt my vision, blinding me from the way I should travel. Escape is futile. Every step I take toward solace my mind conjures up some dismal outcome, so vivid, as though captured permanently on film.
