Trapped - Poem by Emily Wallace

I feel beaten, trapped
I feel as if I am stuck in time
I cannot move forward
I ache with this pain
I tremble with this fear
I do not own my own soul...or my heart
My body, has betrayed me
My eyes fill with tears,
With every shakey breath...
My lungs gasp for air...
Edging slowly toward certain death
It is so hard to breathe
When you are in this much pain...
My dreams have all become nightmares
My hopes have all died...disappeared.
The footprints in the sand
Are going the wrong direction
My heart is cold and dark,
And I shiver with it
Beating frantically inside me...
I am beaten...trapped.
