Here


I.
It’s quiet in here
The crickets chirp outside
The insects are quite alive
But I’m alone in here
The muffled cries
Of empty nights
Are but a trace
Inside of here
It is dark in here
Shadows trace
Across the shallow sky
The ceiling fan’s eye
Makes no mistake in judgement
My peace is here
The rustling night
Holds no appeal to my terror
My heart beat slows
I am alone
I am alone in here
And it comforts me
To see
The bursting youth
the bulletproof face
Of my resting place
I am alone in here
And it is my desire
The night sets no fire
Ablaze in my heart
I like the dark.
And It’s dark in here.

II.
It’s dark in here
I lie awake
my breath accelerates
to a frightening pace
I’m alone in here
Darkness’ stead
wraps my restless head
There’s no help for me here
No love
No hate
No choices
No fate
Only empty walls
And the voiceless calls
Of the oscillation overhead.
I’m dead in here
I’m alive in here
I’m nothing in here
Nothing is everything here
Here
I wish here would disappear
My chest contracts
As my eyes dialate
To see the fate
I cannot
By the door,
The shore of my island
On which I’m trapped
For ever more
I’m alone in here
and safe from the world
Safe from my home
From love
From hate
From decisions or fate
Only trapped
In My shell
My prison
My hell
Under the spell of
Eternal nothing
That endless longing
For something
That is not even there
Or anywhere
I’m trapped in here
In there
In everywhere
I’m trapped in nowhere
And there is no door
To lead to there,
To lead somewhere
I’m trapped in here.
