Will the tree collapse?

Will the tree collapse
burrowing me beneath its pressure
my strength is sub par
and my stamina
is one weighted by exhaustion
and my mental capacity
is overfilling
as the gas is leaking from the opening.

Ones ability to escape
is linked to its need for survival
and if the tree collapses
I wonder if I’d welcome the rest
curl in
close my eyes
and breathe until I cannot.

A soft cry
forces my heart to beat again
and I manage
to climb out from underneath
throwing the pieces of the house
because I must
because it isn’t just me
otherwise I might welcome the sleep.

Thanks for reading.
