Nothing Around Me

This pain that encompasses me,
It takes a hold and does not let go,
Like something wrapping around my body,
And then releasing and tightening,

It is here to stay,
this soul that I have,
so why is it always tormented?
by things unseen but always felt?

I am trapped here,
there is no way out,
no way for me to crawl,
out of this dark, dank pit,

This is spiraling out of control,
unless it is just me,
I can’t grasp a situation,
The pain is too much,

Slowly hearing the bells,
Eyes open slowly to darkness,
Am I dead?
There is nothing around me… nothing around me.
