Surrounded by Cold Darkness and Stale

There he was,

Dusty air invaded his space,

He was all alone, waiting,

Surrounded by cold darkness and stale.

A minute passed, he shuffled his legs,

Sinking to the floor,

Pale glow on his face,

Surrounded by cold darkness and stale.

His bustling thoughts made him think of eternity,

He is captured in this mine shaft,

He jolted upward,

Surrounded by cold darkness and stale.

He focused on the good,

The days he ascended from the trees,

Until he realized,

He is surrounded by cold darkness and stale.

The mine shaft came to a stop,

He squinted to focus,

A pulley is all he saw, then he realized,

He is surrounded by cold darkness and stale.
