The Walls Closing In - Poem by Phil Soar

The walls closed in around me
I had no field of vision
to deflect the sense of loss
the darkness fell inwardly
no peace for me on death's highway
no bright light waiting for me
no spirits hanging over me
just darkness as the walls closed in
and breath suggested that the time was here

The walls closed in around me
like some dark mysterious horror film
the morphine drip sounding louder
as I strained to keep my feelings in
a lone tear ran down my cheek
and yet I felt nothing more than silence
and crawled toward the open door
the only route these walls had left for me
and on the other side I see
What's waiting for me
I smiled
and then was lost forever
