Stuck in an elevator;
Power is out.
Sweaty and nervous,
I have a need to shout.
Nowhere to go,
Time’s at a stop.
Minutes last like hours.
Hearing tick, hearing tock,
Smell is becoming overwhelming bad.
Starting to cry as I’m feeling sad.
Then all at once our power is restored.
The people on the elevator give a silent roar.
The ordeal lasted for five minutes or less,
But I’m glad I’m out of this metallic chest.
