I wrote this when I started college.

She opened her mouth and found
Oh, her lips would not open
As if bound together with glue
And oh, the air she breathes in
Suddenly does not fill her as before
Oh, what a catastrophe it is
Lips firmly pressed, tongue against teeth
The air is not so pure as before
It was not malicious intent she smelled
But oh, such loneliness lies in that of the unknown
