Treasure Island

Summer Song

(July 13,1991 / Indiana)

Stuck in a box


Stuck in a box
I can't get out
someone help me
please I shout

Stuck in a box
they can't hear me
I want to talk
but nothing comes out

Stuck in a box
why can't I say
what's on my mind
it gets on my nerves
can you hear it grind?

scratch

scratch

Stuck in a box
you hear that sound
it's someone telling you
to speak louder

Stuck in a box
I'm so insecure
Someone help me!
but no, they do not hear

    A flowing take of feeling trapped, suffocated or unsung, effectively paralleled as being shut away from everyone else in a mundane object, where people will simply pass you by and probably not pay a second thought to what really may lurk deeper inside. An interesting read.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
