Tap, tap, tap,
It echoes through my door,
As the screams are silenced,
Choking,
Retching,
Scrambling for more,
For breath,
For light,
This cage is airtight,
I scratch and claw,
Rip and shred,
As I submerge again,
Images flooding my head,
Tap, tap, tap,
Noisey families,
Husband and wife,
They laugh and giggle,
As I suffer in darkness,
To light up a life,
What a world it is,
They dunk me again,
Watching me gurgle and writhe,
An addiction, they must,
I want to, I have to,
I need to escape,
It’s just…
