In this anxious place

This hopeless space

The mind spirals away

Trapped in thought


Bars caging her heart

She’s unable to start

Inner voices pursuing

Until she’s caught


The shadows whirl

Too strong for a girl

To resist the touch

Of her mocking plight


And in silence she sits

Her eyes desperate slits

Pleading for a release

Escape from this night
