Imprisoned In The Cell Of The Mind... - Poem by John Tansey

Imprisoned in the Cell of the Mind

This loneliness,
Its exile,
Unto a solitary cell.
Twenty-thee hour lockdown,
One in the yard
Then back to the Cell…

A memory cell
of the mind.
This is where I exist, subsist,
To do my penance,
The spare change of my sentence,
All the while, dying sweetly,
In her arms of reminiscence…
