When It All Begins

Jaibala/ May 29, 2016/ Poetry

The walls, they are closing in,

Reaching voids, just to keep them in,

That is when it all begins,


It’s hard to breathe, I am suffocating,

The world’s spinning, I am waiting,

That’s when the walls, they are closing in,


Truth and lies, the worlds collide,

Hurt, anger and confusion multiplies,

That’s when it all begins,


Pain evolves, loss survives,

Understanding sees beyond the noise,

When the walls begin to close in,


In the darkness, hope appears,

And you know all that you hold dear,

That’s when it all begins,


Beyond the smothering shadows of doubt,

Peeks the sun from behind the clouds,

The walls they close right in,

That’s when it all begins.
