Wake with a start
From a dream I was breathing
Air from the outside
One breath into the day I choke
The fear and hatred of what I fear
Is enough to make me shun the air around me
Built a cave
For myself
Shut me in
Cut me off
From the world
Human den
Face the world
One more time
Near the mouth
Turning out
Rotting fear
Don’t let this creature out
It’s so cold here
And I can’t remember the last time
I felt any different
This dark so terribly nurturing
But where else could I go
Safe as I am here
The breath leaks from my pores
I've fallen
Crippled in regret
Yet I haven't uttered a word
Over, and over again
(It's) Absurd to suffer
Over something so acute
Meaningless, this realization
Justified all the same
In this place
I can’t bear to breathe again
The waste leaks from my pores
And I try to dig deeper
For air that must be there
I have to dig myself a home
