A Very, Very Small Space

February 2, 2021


I’m in a very dark place
There isn’t much around me
Nothing that I can see

If I move, the wall hits me
I hit the wall back
My hand hurts. 

In front of me
I see nothing but
Another wall
Visions flicker under my eyelids
I can see green sparkles in this 


They are not good sparkles
I wish they would go away
I do not have to close my eyes
To have nightmares

“LET ME OUT!” I scream
But there’s only silence
I realize something

That I, am in my way
But I don’t want to be freed
I do not want to be out
Of that tiny space.


I would rather be limited
Than ever leave
It protects me 
From something far greater
A threat that hangs over my head

Like a rainstorm, it thunders on the walls. 
I can feel it closing in
So I clutch my knees to my chest
There’s a pounding on the walls 
Of my tiny space.

A hurricane. A tornado,
It seeks me out, to destroy me.
Sparkles flicker beneath my eyelids
Not again, do I have a headache. 

Now the door is swinging open
And I’m clutching onto the doorknob,
I try to pull it back in. 
But it’s thrashing, the door is hard to shut again.

The tornado is whipping me 
Making my cheeks sting with fury
But it isn’t who you are. 
They whisper. 
I know who you are.

It isn’t strange or creepy
It smells like home
But I do not want this tornado 
I do not want home. 

I bang the door close
And there I am again
In my very, very small space.

    I like this piece; you convey the closeness and press of the small space very well, and the deeper themes running here strike, for me, a chord; it's well crafted and the flow works well, I like the spirally writing of "darkness", which although just a shape conveys the way it feels quite succinctly. I'm getting flowery with my language now, sorry, I'm a sucker for it. I enjoyed reading it, others should to.
