Confined to a couch.

A sickness inside
confined to a couch
listening to the tunes
of the birds chirping about
and the laughter
of others at play
sinking deeper within the couch
a bite upon the cheek
and tears they drip
as the little creature
struggles to speak
begging to be set free
another nibble
and the jailer won’t budge
for the sickness is to great
a single movement
and they may burst.

Thanks for reading.
