Afraid

Where am I Peter?
Where am I Paul?
My feet seem to teeter
I'm afraid I might fall

How did I get here?
How can this be?
My sight is unclear
But I'm afraid to see

Who is in on this guys?
Who would make such a plan?
My feet are tightly tied
But I'm afraid if I ran

When will I be let go?
When did I arrive?
I can't hear a soul
But I'm afraid of who's alive

Why did this happen?
Why is it me?
My body feels strapped in
But I'm afraid to be free

The last stanza concludes this well.
"My body feels strapped in
But I'm afraid to be free"
I like that..

Deliciously dark .. an ominous read. I love dark poetry and this is a wonderful expression of it.

I love how the questions empower this poem.
