Tomb

You’ve locked yourself
away in your room

been there so long
it’s more like a tomb.

The curtains are pulled
to keep out the light

feeling at ease
knowing your out of sight.

The hours go by
and you hardly move

thinking to yourself
could this improve.

What would it take
for you to open the door?

the thought of that
shakes you to your core.

Hiding from the problems
that you cannot face

convinced that this is
the only way to erase.
