The labyrinth

I close my eyes & I begin to dream
Only to be awoken by echoing screams,
A maze of paths & endless patterns
“Holy fuck” how did this happen?

I drift around there’s no way out
Barely can see I panic & shout,
Menacing roars from far ahead
It knows I’m here & it needs to be fed.

I run around it’s a lot to apprehend
Paths lead to nowhere except dead ends,
The pattern is complex, I’m not going lie
I’m scared I’m lost & I don’t want to die.

Instincts surge and logic appears
I’ll find the centre, everything is clear,
To get the key to open this door
I need to find and kill that Minotaur.

Starting to wish I listened to my teacher
How did Theseus kill this creature?
I can’t think as the roars get closer,
I stumble & fall, “shit”
I land in the Minotaur’s enclosure.

I can feel it with me, I’m fully aware
It’s sizing me up as I feel its stare,
Creeping out of the dark into my space
I nearly collapsed it has the same face.

Everything is clear the maze is my head
The fear I carry keeps this monster fed,
I’ve to face myself if I want to be free
I’m the only one that’s holding the key.
