help

i’ve been trapped in this escape room for days now

no clues as to how to find the exit

i’ve torn everything apart in frantic need to leave

in my mind i know it is my living room but that living hasn’t occured in it for so long it is a subsisting room

a room of decadent mere survival

the door is there but i cannot bring my leaden legs to stand, my concrete shoes to move on deadened feet

the floor is not lava but the idea of leaving fills me with burning dread

i see the world outside

semaphorically i flash flags in an effort to signal my need

the neighbors just see the loon waving his underwear in desperation through the glass

they look the other way as i seek a clue, shield their eyes from the look of panic and insanity

lost in a goldbergian labyrinth of my own design

my name is michael david

i was once a person just like you
