Trapped

I feel the hurt portrayed in your eyes
The spiralling descent into nothingness
An abyss of depression
The fight lost
Over as exhaustion consumes you

The rut you were once in widens
Looking up from a chasm of constant similarity
Everything’s the same
The wheel of time turning
Fragments of yourself trodden underfoot

There is no anger to consume you
The fires of emotion extinguished long ago
An empty shell
Meandering along
Trapped like a slave to a life confined

  1. Holy shit, Chris. You are so versatile. It’s like…. is there ANY genre you can’t do? Any writing that you don’t nail perfectly?? I am humbled when I read your words. Honored that you share them with the world. So: thank you.
    I loved this.
