Trapped

by Hamda   Jun 18, 2019


I act as a magnet attracting negativity
This energy I can’t control
I find myself running, but in the same place, I stand.
Frozen, in total darkness and the light is never found
The silence triggers my body
As I wish for sound
I squint my eyes for a glimpse of light, as I look once more
At what was once my strong heart
Shattered, by my optimistic characteristics.
I feel the wind rushing in, my heart getting cold
My unsteady and weak feet, I can no longer hold.
There is nowhere to run and no going back
I'm trapped, in this endless black.

    There was such a push-and-pull in this piece that perfectly embodied the feeling and essence of being "trapped". How we still survive and feel like we are moving forward, but can't see or track the progress. The kind of illusions our minds convince us are real - that the light will never be found, that we won't be able to hold on any longer.

    But we must still try. Even if the endless black surrounds us. We must keep hoping for more.
    Thank you for sharing a very frightening and emotional reality of being trapped.
