Going Underground

Don’t look now,

I’m digging a hole,

big enough to swallow me

whole.

I’ve had enough of topside,

the pressure and pain,

I’m burying myself alive,

you won’t see me again.

I’m not going to die,

won’t choke on the soil,

but I’m living a life

you will not spoil -

going chthonic.
