Suddenly, he emerged from within,
Silent, sneaking closer with a vicious grin,
Slinging his arms around me,
So calm so innocent, but cold like the wide sea.
Then he takes hold of me, pulling me underneath the surface,
The emotions numb – no feelings, no memories, all wordless,
Thoughts become meaningless, fatigue is the usurper of the mind,
There is a world turning on the outside, but he keeps me behind.
I want to leave, but I am a prisoner,
In the void, denial keeps his throne secure,
I am wondering about the life I could have,
It drifts farther away, more impossible day after day.
How can I be free again?
He is silencing me with wolf’s bane.
Here I am, held on a tight ring,
I am drowning, drowning, –
