Enclosure


There is no feeling worse than the moment where it all goes black
And dark and eerie. The feeling of loneliness, an eternal silence.
There is no feeling worse than the moment where everyone has left
And it is only you. The feeling of being forgotten, left behind.
There is no feeling worse than the moment where all falls through
And suddenly you have lost everything. The feeling of brokenness.
There is no feeling worse than the moment that you are choking, on nothing but air,
Nothing but breathing, choking on the very string of life, of attempting to hold on,
Of attempting to continue breathing, to keep looking--moreover acting--as if all is well
When all is not well.
There is no feeling worse than the moment where the mug holding water is empty
And the inside of your lips feel like a desert. The feeling of desolateness.
There is no feeling worse than the moment where the date on the bills slip by
And now there is no where else to turn. The feeling of loss, of getting kicked out.
There is no feeling worse than the moment where your parents are gone
And all you have left to remember them is money and photos. The feeling of chance, insecurity.
There is no feeling worse than the moment where your safety becomes a target
And you are no longer safe anywhere. The feeling of being hunted, of being chased.
There is no feeling worse than the moment that you are merely walking, up the stairs,
Or to the car, or to the front of the house where you remember--your mind makes you
Remember, it refuses to let you forget the past and the past: just chases you everywhere
And never lets you go.
This feeling is a feeling of being trapped. Of being stuck, Of being choked. Of being suffocated.
Trapped. You are afraid. You feel threatened.
Your mind has no place to run free and wild.
