Thick Black Fog

I’m trapped
Stuck in this horrible place
The walls slowly caving in, I need some space
They threaten to crush me
To end my very existence
I can feel the darkness creeping in
Ready to engulf me whole
Ready to end me and take my soul
The life in which my mother gave
Is now being slowly drained

The darkness has now overtaken me
But there’s nothing I can do
I can’t even see
No matter how hard I try
I can’t escape this empty abyss
My only goal in life is to have
Just a little bliss
No matter how small
I little is better than none at all
I can’t seem to smile anymore
And I forgot how to laugh
My life was once whole
But now it’s only half
Locked up, Trapped, caged away
In my mind is where these terrible games are played
I can’t forfeit or even get a time out
I’m the withered corn dead from the drought
No more life within
Completely crushed, nowhere to begin
The blackness IS me
It’s in MY soul
It HEALS me
It once again makes me whole
I am the epitome of depression
But the darkness fuels my aggression
Embracing the night
Makes everything alright
Helps all problems fade
Everything turns gray
These walls cease to collapse
Allowing me to breathe

I loved it. Again your description is spectacular. :) You really took the reader to that place that you felt was engulfing you and taking your soul. It was as if you were reaching out to the reader and explaining how you felt. It was done nicely. :)
