No light seeps in through this airtight box.
Its four walls suffocate me.
I need to break through.
Let some light in, let some air in.
I crave bright lights and big cities,
Embedded now in the back of my brain
Like some distant memory.
This darkness is beginning to blow out my fire.
I can hear the world outside this box.
Sounds of waves crashing over the shore,
That 80’s song
Mum plays on repeat.
How I long to see those waves kiss the shores,
The radio that played all night long.
I can feel the walls around me
Consume me like a flame.
One day I’ll look at these walls
And not just look,
But break them down.
Let light in.
