Trap

Trap

A Poem by jex

Been years since I've gone down this road,

Ages since I could remember,

The start of all this


Through the transfixing angelic sky,

Down to the enchanting devilish earth,

All I wanted was to begin again


But now I wait,

Stuck here


Now I wait,

Trapped here


In and between and outside,

Top and bottom and inside,

Scratching my way out


Can't get out of here,

Can't bring myself to dig that hole,

Can't muster the strength to climb out


I'm stuck here,

Trapped here,

Waiting forever


So I rush down,

Tunnel down,

Bury myself deeper


Fly up,

High up,

Lock myself higher


No matter what I do,

I'll always be lost down here,

Stuck waiting for you

I love how you begin this poem with the first stanza:
"Been years since I've gone down this road,
Ages since I could remember,
The start of all this"

Love how you pictured the detailed scene here:
"Through the transfixing angelic sky,
Down to the enchanting devilish earth,
All I wanted was to begin again"

Awesome:
"In and between and outside,
Top and bottom and inside,
Scratching my way out"

Nice show of the energy used:
"Can't muster the strength to climb out"

A poem only growing more powerful... lovin' it:
"So I rush down,
Tunnel down,
Bury myself deeper

Fly up,
High up,
Lock myself higher"

Love the ending in the last stanza.
Nice simple title, "Trap". Very fitting and just enough for a title for this poem.
I absolutely love this poem, very nice, deep, dark, emotionally draining in a powerful way it seems, to be trapped this way. Awesome.
