Caught in the Webb

As each day slides through the window

Pouring itself onto the carpet below

I close my eyes and pray for sleep

That will not come, fear begins to creep.

From my soul it spreads about

Clouding rational thoughts out

Where did it all begin to fall apart

Leaving me with a broken heart.

Trapped in a spiders webb

Watching normality start to ebb

Out of reach and out sight

I struggle with the day, and dread the night.

      I do feel your pain mine is different. It’s awful to have someone you love with you but they are not there at all just an empty shell. πŸ’œπŸ’œ
