"Can Anybody Hear Me?"

Location

Hello,

is anyone there?

Anybody at all?

Ive cried too much.

This demon,

it has me locked,

locked deep inside.

It has me lynched

and lifeless.

It drained all of my life,

my energy,

my happiness.

I ask this demon,

why do you do this?

It says to me,

It needs to be this way.

I scream in terror,

but my scream was cut short.

It had me,

wrapped around my throat.

It sinks its teeth in,

my soul flies out.

I cry a muffled cry,

can anybody hear me?

Please,

Can anybody hear me?
