Coffin

I try to reach out
But once again I'm
Trapped within the
Tiny box I call my mind

Killing me inside
As I try to escape the sentence
That I seem to have given myself

for not doing enough
To hold on to the one I love
For not raising above the obstacles
That stand me and my obsession

Not knowing the way to
Release the tension
That now builds within me
So in this way I am trapped
Buried beneath my emotion
