it’s so dark here as I sit in this chair
my candle casting shadows on the metal door
I searched for the lock to pick it open
there is no door knob on the outside
I pounded and pounded upon it
even trying to break it down
I can hear the crying and screaming on the other side
why won’t you open the door?
are you lost in the darkness…
such a lonely blindness in that cell
where are your matches?
I’m not afraid and I am outside
