To Be Lost in Oneself

A thousand eyes, all transfixed
Pupils lost in the blindness
Tongues of fire shout orange
Drops of blood seep red
To be lost in oneself
 
Delving deeper into the roots
the box widens, the walls expand
the darkness swallows the space
Swiftly falling into madness
To be lost in oneself
 
Beasts wave their claws
An electricity of fear chills the air
Horrors never to be heard abound
Voices echo words once known
To be lost in oneself
 
Out again the air is stiff
the body breathes air anew
chest pulsing with the feelings
of escape of once was known
To be lost in oneself
 
The claws inside start scratching
Ripping the fragile walls down
of what was thought to be known
and the breaths slowly stop
To be lost in oneself
 
The body belongs to the floor
not to arise once more
Torn from the inside out
The walls take hold yet again
To be lost in oneself
