escape (the stifling of the soul)

Escape

           Close your eyes.
           Reach for me.
           Does anyone know what sets me free?

           Haunting blackness all around.
           I scream and thrash, but not a sound...

           Close your heart.
           Pull me in.
           Weighing me down like the burden of sin.

           Gasp for air but cannot breathe
           Inside my soul I burn and seethe.

           Close your eyes.
           Reach for me.
           Does anyone know what sets me free?
