This Cage

This cage is small
I do not fit
I'm all scrunched up
Inside of it

This cage repulses
The stench unbearable
My stomach turns
This damage irreparable

This cage is locked
I can not escape
My skin is split
By snugness of tape

The years go by
The scars appear
All that is left
Is the emotion of fear

I force my eyes open
On you they remain
As you unlock the door
Release me from pain

You do not give up
I'm carried away
And with your soft words
I may heal someday

not sure what to say about this one. I REALLY REALLY like it but I dont know why. I really am just lost completely, but a feeling of familiarity is kickin around somewhere inside my head when I read this one

Wow, another good work. I really like your style. It is somewhat similar to mine, but unique. I like the rhyme scheme and fluidity of your poems. And they really do drip with imagery and passion. Makes me want to read more... K

Thank You so much...your comments are quite encouraging!

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
