The Room...

I get lost in a White, boring wall.
Over powered by
pink and black
zebras all around,
running through
The sheets of my bed.
Pictures glow when
the sun explodes
from my window,
Begging for attention.
As I look out my window
I feel pure joy when
the sun sets.
Until darkness takes over.
Lights flicker on
and off as I move.
I am locked in
my cell as I wait
until sunrise.
I see shadows and ghosts
in fear of my dreams.
Lonely in my dark room
with me and them,
I blast music all night
to hide the screams and cries.
I wake up.
I turn around to see
my white wall.
