EMOTIONS

It grips me
Holds me
No!
More like hijacks me.
I am held against my will
I am not able to move
Like a python
It wraps around me
I am running short of breath
Oh gosh
I feel the cold
It creeps in
Slowly slides up
In no time
The sun is gone
Replaced by the cold
Cloudless and dull
My days begin
My heart tries to beat
The beats get slower
It beats with strain
Trying to survive
Trying to reach into that….
That, that, vacuum
That empty place
I try to shake it off
It holds tighter
Like a leach
It sucks my blood
My energy
My legs give way
I fall at its feet
Oh Lord
This can’t happen again
I can’t go through this again
I do not have the strength to survive
Twice is enough
A third will kill me
Leave me without a soul
What do I do?
I need your divine help
I need
I need
I hear a scream
It is not human
Did you hear it?
Can you hear it?
Where did it come from?
I need to know
I want to know
I am scared to know
Scared of the answer?
Scared of the reaction
I am scared of you.
