Been in this pit for a while,
Stuck in the dark,
My mind claws at the walls,
Leaving deep ruts,
I sit cradling my weary brain,

I have not the strength,
Nor the will,
To escape this place,
Can anyone tell me what sunlight is?
I don’t remember,

I forget what threw me down,
Maybe I jumped,
Would I choose this dismal hell?
To punish myself,
Or was it someone else?

I hear happiness walk past my pit,
Joys and laughs,
Elation and innocence,
They glance down timidly,
And hear my misery,

My moans scare them,
They flee in terror,
They leave me down here,
Trapped in the gloom,
Trapped in the pit.
