Unsub

24

The darkness clears & light resumes

I should now feel safe or so I assume

I am trapped in my house, I just can't leave

The phone rings, I freeze, unable to breathe

 

I watch the wakers moving through the day

I shake & tremble just like I did yesterday

I tell myself that there is nothing to fear

But something is here, I can feel it near

 

Trapped in a world from which I cannot escape

Caught in a repeating loop that I cannot break

Is my worrying existence real or just fake?

Have I made the right choice or an awful mistake?

 

Caught in a world from which I cannot break

Trapped in a repeating loop I cannot escape

Is my fearful existence real or simply fake?

Have I made the right choice or a dreadful mistake?

 

The daylight leaves & the dark resumes

I move slowly upstairs & hide in my room

The blanket of dark leaves me so afraid

I'm scared of the ghosts my mind has made

 

The sleepers drift into their world so calm

I tremble & shake awaiting some harm

I climb into bed so the covers can protect

Can't sleep, something is here, I can detect

      Look, you're going to have to accept that all this mention of Boris is not about a spider! No, the country is NOT being ruled by a huge blonde spider and YES it is safe for you to go out BUT check daily just in case we are all forbidden to breathe or something under covid rules.

        Dusky,

        breathing is currently banned in Wales; just nipping across the border for a quick breath!

        Unsub,

        At the moment in our world we feel trapped but we will get out into the light and have joy in time.

            I am lucky in one way as I have not put up any decorations this year for obvious reasons.

            wow!
            'I'm scared of the ghosts my mind has made'
            well, there is so many ways I can interpret and use your masterly woven words, to better my understanding of myself and other's, but I won't bore you with a lengthy tangent and distract any attention away from the core message you have scripted so poetically,
            I'll just state that a long time ago I read a book titled 'a Child called It', part of a series by an autobiographical author named Dave Pelzer, the last book in the series is titled ' a Man named Dave',
            I hope the voice in your write, get's a chance to experience the 'Dave' ending possibility's - life has to offer...
            Another Brilliant write Unsub!

              I had my own very personal interpretation of this and it rather summed up the loop of my mind as I retreat to my bedroom each day...

              Trapped in a world from which I cannot escape

              Caught in a repeating loop that I cannot break

              Is my worrying existence real or just fake?

              Have I made the right choice or an awful mistake?

              Hope you’re doing well buddy 😊
