Inside

Outside? There’s nothing for you outside.

The fear is here

You are trapped. Walls of skin

Layers of concrete, dense.

No doors and no window.

Parched, famished, alive.

 

For ever.

 

Outside you could die. Inside,

You are breathing so hard

despite the thinning air

 

And the tragedy of it all

Is how close you were

You really do a great job of capturing claustrophobia here, Luna.
