Lifelines

Silence.
From the depths, a deep earthly shudder.
I need to get out of here
Alive.
It began as an adventure.
Something… fun.
Just try it, they said.
It's safe, they said.
But who am I to place blame,
There is no time
for hate. The ropes tighten
around my neck,
arms pinned at my sides
by the suffocating soil.
I feel nothing but the darkness
Spiraling eternally downwards.
Their searching will be in vain.
I glance upward, hopes high,
But my partner's face
Is blocked by a mountain of dirt.
I see only a lone light in the abyss.
God help me.
