Intrapment - Poem by Jennifer English

Wind so soothing
And ground so firm
An existance worth living.

Locked up like a caged tiger
Stripes fading with hope
Eyes dulling till they are bleak.

Longing tears at my heart
To feel the night air on my skin
To feel wanted I would do anything.

Friends talk behind my back
And family play games with truth
My will has drawn thin.

Fire tears at my heart
And even he cannot save me
Light is such a rare sight.

Hateful music blears in my ears
I loath everyone and more
Freedom is their reward.

That needle tears at soft skin
But no blood is spilt
I cannot bleed if I am already dead inside.
