Trapped again in this cage

drunk without drinking

spinning without cause

mind numb and reeling

depression creeps close

screaming for out

somebody release

me from this burden

this unfortunate curse

doomed to repeat

universeโ€™s random joke

on me, never to count

on the happy times lasting

for any minute the rug

pulled out from standing

no end in sight

of this cruel plight

Iโ€™d rather be

anywhere else

than in me
