Meadow twined – strangled
Rooted so deep, the flowers whimper
Water gushing – wasting
Moss and fungi prevails!

Claustrophobic in the cave,
Fireflies – they light it
I sit under the damp leaves – facing the waning flame
Pale from hunger and neglect

Exhausted –hadn’t eaten in days

Realized – those who claimed to care
Tellers of long tales
Doubt now –how long will I survive?
Will die, in the cave – surrounded by fir
