Help!

The walls are closing in; I cannot breathe.
It is getting darker.
I want to
… run away and hide,
But this box won’t let me
… scream away this fear.
It is getting darker.
The walls are closing in; I cannot breathe.

  2. Suzanne, your poem makes me feel almost claustrophobic but sometimes that’s precisely how our emotions make us feel. I hope whatever is making you feel this way vanishes soon. I’ll say a special prayer for you.

    • Thank you, Cathy. The prompting of this poem was the diagnosis that I received on Monday. I have cataracts in both eyes. Every time I think about what this could mean, I have a very hard time breathing. Thank you so much for the prayers. I definitely need and appreciate them very much! Have a blessed evening and a Merry Christmas. 🙂
