i am trapped within four walls,

walls of my mind, my 

heart, the walls of my dreams,

i cannot escape and the shadows

make it difficult to 

breathe. 

why did you leave me here, 

alone and trapped 

in a world with no air,

the sensation of bones crushing, lungs

aching, screaming, screaming, 

screaming...

i am trapped and i

am alone.
