The walls are closing in.
The dark that is my soul envelopes me.
Blindly I scream.
Fingers tear at my emotions.
Searching for the answers I need.
I want to breathe.
Circling my self imposed cell.
Round and round I stumble.
A blanket of despair pulls me under.
I see you clearly now.
I know what's going on.
Contradiction and anger abound.
Stay over there.
Don't come any closer.
Give back what I gave so freely.
No longer in your care.
Steeped in regret and misery.
My heart once again belongs to me.
