Title: Choked

I’m wondering how
it got so dark in here.
You’re holed up in ‘your’ room
Curtains drawn. Music playing.
Dark Man.

I’m wondering how
it got so dark here.
Your expression as doleful as nightfall.
My stomach churns
to the gloom.

I’m wondering how
it got so dark here.
War by suffocation. You win Babe.
It’s way too dark
for combat.
