Light seems to flicker.
Just enough to keep me alive.
I see a naked me.
Alone in a cell.
In a dark open space.
I feel its massiveness and emptiness.
I watch as I hung onto the bars of the cell I am in.
Caged like a wild animal by my own mind.
I see hope fading like mist while the sun rises.
I seat, haunted and tired.
The energy to hide behind my smiles and beautiful laughter,
vanish right before my eyes.
I watch myself dying.
And somehow it gives me peace.
