Locked Away In A Dream - Poem by Dennis Adonis

I am locked away in this place
Not sure where I am
Tears strolling down my face
Like a baby in a pram

Locked away in the dark
Was the order of the day
Only if I was a lark
I would have surely flown away

Locked away in pain
In this heart of mine
I pinch myself again
To see if I was dreaming in time

Locked in a place so chill
And completely in fright
No rest for me still
Even in the silence of the night.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I think one of the most tormenting of all dreams that someone can has is dreaming that you are incarcerated, notwithstanding the where or even for what.

I have interacted with quite a number of persons who have suffered to such dreams, and even I myself had endured quite a few of this night time sleep spoiler.

But putting all of the above aside, this poem can be more considered as a mind fiction or artistic reflection of someone locked away in a horrible realm.
In its own words, it establishes that the dreamer is in serious mental pain as they struggles to escape their surreal circumstances.
Nonetheless, my inspiration for this poem actually came from a dream of the same nature that I had experienced only a few months ago, but with less intensity.

For those of you who would have experienced the same, I guess you can resonate well with my chronology of the dream itself.
