Locked In A Box


I don't know where I am,

Can't see,

Can't feel,

Can't move.


Darkness surrounds me,

Teasing me,

Telling lies; stories,

I block them out.


I'm helpless,

I plead for release,

Pray for a miracle,

Please, just let me go.


I speak with emotion,

Hopeful but unsure,

Scared of everything,

Terrified of the dark.


I open my eyes only to see,

Dark walls,

Misshapen and approaching,

Closing in.


I try to yell,

To scream for release,

Until a light shines on me,

I blink, knowing I've been saved.
