Swallowed Up by Sharnell Tull

Depression swallowed me up inside
YEP
scooped my being into his vacuum of a mouth
          twisted my lips into a devilish curl
He had me….
strongholds cross my limbs
           chained to the D
.

whipped, pimped
he did NOT skimp on the power
slaved inside
          to the maze
that depression laid
..

“I’ll never let you go…you’ll meet death here”
Depression swallowed me up inside
YEP
picked me up by the feet and carried me into his lair
                    enucleated my eyes so I could not see sunrise
                                        He had me….
                    tape cross my lips
chained to the D
