Random Poem:

In a prison of your own Making
intract

I hope that these lines betray me
 1
that they cause you to see
 2
that not all is right with me.
 3
In the darkness of this despair,
 4
in the evening of my disrepair,I
 5
...i am broken.
 6
In my self inflicted solitude,
 7
alone in my sadness,
 8
i confess in silence
 9
my tears held back.
 10
I want these words to stain
 11
this pure white page,
 12
with an honesty unchecked,
 13
to choke the cradle that rocks
 14
and shake the hand that breaks.
 15
I want to rattle the walls of sensitivity
 16
to crash down the doors that conceal,
 17
this foolish prison of pride,
 18
i no longer want to hide,
 19
to pretend everything is alright.
 20
I need the light
 21
to penetrate this darkness
 22
and finally free me...
 23
