the walls close in
shadows draw nearer

they creep along the floor
reaching for my ankles

with insubstantial tentacles

they want to choke me
to smother me

they buzz static

chilling me to my very core

I kick at them
they won’t leave me
it won’t let go

climbing up my leg

it won’t let go

it grows
multiplies tenfold
like a wave it consumes me

drowning me

a sweet crescendo of silence
an echo of doubts

does no-one see the shadows?

does no-one hear my screams?
Or is the world blind to this shadow world?
