Am I alone

Surrounded by shadows

Locked on all sides

By the ghostly gallows

I’m suffocating

Can’t breathe in this hell

Too hot for me

I can’t stand the smell

Survival of the fittest

But I’m the weakest link

Or will I be stronger

And pull out underneath

I can’t move forward

Can’t move back

Stuck in place by the remnants of the past

Love lost, a friendship abandoned

Toxic fumes coming from the dark cabinet

Where I placed all my pain

Locked it away

Hoping to never see it again

But like Kronos from Tartarus

It beckons to me

Wanting me desperately to set it free

But I must prevail, I have to be strong

Or I will sink deeper in the depression it's caused
