John, first let me say I don't usually comment on other peoples' poems. Most that I read seem very deep and my simplistic mind experiences trouble processing. But, I felt very compelled to comment on yours. I may get something different out of it but it seems to me that this is about someone with a mental disorder struggling to stay in touch with the real world. He/she is locked in this other world wanting to escape but doesn't know how. I happen to really, really like this poem. I'm not quite sure why but I think it appeals to me because I suffer from Bipolar 1 disorder and it seems this is exactly how I feel.
