Without punctuation

The gates have shut
Walls have risen
Kicked in the gut
In this mindless prison

I feel remorse… I confess

Bound and gagged
Chained and beaten
My body dragged
And soul all eaten

I am punished… I bear

No ounce of scope
For my release
Within, I mope
While on my knees

I need freedom… I escape

Surrounded by sea
But I can’t swim
Hopes to be free
Are very dim

I feel challenged… I try

This menacing ray
Filling my cell
Sounding too gray
Like a resounding knell

I am afraid… I craze

I’ve tried to run
But all in vain
Faced by a gun
I’m trapped again

I feel helpless… I fail

Now none to bait
Nothing to pry
So I lie in wait
To rot and die

I give in… I finally give up…

    I know it may be off the mark here…but this keeps bringing up somatic bodywork/meditation to me.

    All the way intense Kavita…like always. No holding back…
    That is inspiring.Thank you

    Very melancholic and heartfelt words

  5. Grim as the reaper, Kavita. Enjoyed the rhyming innocence on such darkness.

    Oh but this is wonderful Kativa. Dark and scary. Love it.

    The Beloved Dreamer account is no longer me. I have hidden it but it keeps coming back.I don’t know why. My wordpress blog is http://cassiopeia'sblog.wordpress.com. I think that is mixed up also. That’s why I do not like WordPress and use blogger. My blogger account is
    http://cassiopeiarises.blogspot.com. You can find me poems by hitting my avatar.
