What a dark room.
Solitude reaches in for my soul.
I gaze out into nothingness trying
to find my way through all this hell.
This disease that keeps me from breathing.
It clutches my sides and strangles me
causing so much pain and misery.
Loneliness traps me and I'm all alone
fighting this battle.
This was written after I was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease.
