Sometimes I
Manage to
Somehow
Open up a little and then
It bursts out, only for
A second
But
When it's over
I just close up
Again, my
Bunker
Rebuilds itself
From the ground up –
But it was never really gone,
Was
It?
It stays, even as a
Hologram, just to
Remind me of
Who I am and
What and
How I
Never open up and
Why, but wait –
The why
Doesn't really make sense,does
It?
Sometimes I
Manage to
Somehow
Open up a little and then
It bursts out, only for
A second but
When it's over
I just close up
Again, my
Monsters -
The skeletons in my
Empty closets -
Go back, go hide and
Sometimes
Never see the
Light of day
Again.
I need
Air!
My
Closets are
Musty and
Murky, low
Light, no
Air, no
Water, just
Damp, dark, still,
Forever.
Forever?
