In a Bottle

I saw myself inside the bottle of a cola drink,
as I was looking under the kitchen’s sink.
Stored away were the sodas for the week,
and when I saw the image I became a freak.

The shadow caused my eyes to see a reflection,
of my face as I walked away in another direction.
Then I felt the same emotion of being stored away,
in the silence of a bottle where I would longer stay.

Inside the glass bottle is were my emotions were stored,
as my mind felt like it was my prison as I felt I was bored.
I slowly picked the soda pop to see myself again inside,
and my brain wanted to explode of the things I had confide.

In a cell I had spent my last year as I hardly went out,
while my memory traveled to my past in screams and shouts.
It was time to open the glass bottle to let myself go free,
so I pulled the cap and poured the liquid until I couldn’t see me.
