The feeling of defeat; a sinking iron ship. 

Nowhere but down, everywhere glares the darkness;

Choking in the tightness, as the lungs collapse

Shock becomes panic becomes fear. 

 

Look around, no one but shadows creeping

Slowly suffocating, squeezing out the life. 

Tears flood against deaf walls; an unknown sorrow,

Buried deep under the earth like a rotting corpse. 

 

How to survive? How to stay alive? 

How to climb up? How to get up from the bottomless pit? 

How to breathe again? How to live once again? 

Trapped in a metal sphere, trapped like a beast…

 

Hopelessness in all its glory, growing like weeds,

Eat away the tiny sliver of hope; numb the senses

To feel, to believe, to dream, and to love once more;

All impossible in this prison cell of torture.
