Let me go

I am in the box
the box is shut
the lid too heavy
It will not budge

Time is nothing
It is everywhere
There is no edge
between the dark
and me

Silence is not
the ticking beetle
the ticking roof
the ticking heart

The cold is killed
with warm breath
which suffocates
slowly

My skin screams
bones beseech
locked mind
locked box
to let me go

Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

  1. The repetition in the last stanza is very well done, and so beautifully haunting!

  2. These seem to burst from you like so much popcorn! Have you considered a book of poems? Or do you already have one?
