Tunnel Vision

I think of tunnels
Of late,
Spiraling darkness
Through space
Spitting mad like a snake
Cold sweat
Heart in my ears
Blood thick
Blind faith
This tunnel quest
This slow spiral through hell
Fumbling for a torch light
Matches snuffed by gusts of wind
Searching, just searching
For the smallest slice of light
Burning through
Some crack
But then I catch myself
This misplaced hope
This tunnel vision
It is so dark in here
Even the light must be defeated.
