Trapped within despair,
Gulping to take in air,
Heaviness takes over a gaping chest,
Thoughts become obsessed.
Fear lingers around my soul,
Stopping me from becoming whole,
Throwing me into the giant mess,
Moments that I have long repressed.
The shriek of laughter from a monster,
A dark and ominous impostor,
Puppeteering the world below him,
Feeding off every terrible whim.
Gaining strength through fear,
The people would sing and cheer,
“It can’t be as bad as it seems, ”
Until she lets out her final screams.
