Despair


She had it all
but she still wanted more.
The need to satisfy her greed
drew her away from her safe haven.
The moment she stepped foot out of her sanctuary
she felt stuck.
She flailed her arms,
fighting for her life,
grasping onto whatever molecule of air she could.
She fought desperately
as she slowly sunk further,
further into the depths of despair.
Every attempt she made
caused her to be chained lower;
and with her last breath
she slowly succumbed
to the tantalizing arms of the end.
