Trapped Captive Stuck in Torment

Trapped in a Cage
Like in a gerbil-sized world
All my hopes shattered
None of my dreams unfurled

Captive in a reality
That just doesn’t seem real
None of it feels right
What’s the true deal?

Stuck by an exit
That I just can’t use
To do would be worse
The temptation I must refuse

Tormented by no answer
To the questions I keep
So I sit here alone
And continue to weep
