There’s a model ship sitting in my room;
just there—
above the desk.
It sails upon the stale and noiseless air—
a tomb-
like silence.

There’s a globe, turning idly in my room;
just there—
on the bookshelf.
It shows me that I can’t go anywhere—
a doom
of absence.

A light bulb flick-flickers out in my room;
just there—
the ceiling dims.
I can’t see anything, but I don’t care—
a womb-
like darkness.

There lies a hand-bound journal in my room;
just there—
upon the desk.
Its secrets—hidden there, I do not share—
my insides.

My heart is full, it hasn’t any room;
just there—
that’s why it cries.
In silence holding her beyond compare—
for whom
I wake up.

And yet, I know I will not leave my room;
just there—
that’s where I lie.
It is a tomb, the ending womb: my lair—
a gloom
