Feeling claustrophobic in this cell
The walls are coming down on me
Retreating back into my shell
I’m not who I used to be
Is it hard to tell?
These venom infused words are killing me
Chocking me out till I can’t breathe
Trying to change the very essence of me
Freedom is just a door away
But my cell doesn’t have any doors
Only a window sealed with bars
Feeling trapped and alone
The darkness is enveloping me
Is this the end of me?
