Spinning ‘round and ‘round

Lungs desperate for some air

She feels like she could drown

Wishing they wouldn’t stare

The loneliness is sinking in

Her words escape like bubbles 

Swimming blindly with her fin 

She can’t escape her troubles 

Claustrophobic walls of glass 

An ocean void of space

Wondering how long she’ll last 

Before she’ll be replaced 

Longing for the glass to break 

To join the great big world

Something to release the ache

Of always being swirled
