Claustrophobia came over me as I awakened from my slumber.
Trapped in a silent box only to fit something the size of me, and nothing more,
I started to feel sick.
Nervous to the point that I began to shake,
I could not move my hands and feet.
I could not inhale the oxygen in the air.

As time passed by, my hunger increased.
Minutes became hours and hours became days.
I grew weaker and weaker.
I grew closer and closer to darkness.
I was dying.

I wrote this piece for Halloween, after I was given a prompt by my teacher sbout someone who was buried alive.
