"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


Trapped in a closing room,

No place for me to run.

I look for myself in reflections,

But all I see is a stranger.

Air closing up can't breathe,

Clinging to my final hope.

No this isn't how it ends,

Is it?

I take one last look,

And a stranger looks back.

No I scream,

Not now not like this.

At once I realize it's not a room,

It's a rope around me,

I'm trapped in my own sorrow.

This poem is about the feeling of being trapped in your own sorrow and the feeling that life will never get better.
