Praying In An Empty Room - Poem by Guinevere Eveleigh

I'm praying in what their saying
Is an empty room
They are stressing that my words are trapped
In the corner of these four walls

They say I'm going mad
That my eyes are glazed over
Apparently I'm delusional
That i need my medication
That maybe i should take a little trip
To the asylum

But they will never understand
I don't need the words
to travel to outer space
That i don't need you kneeling down
With bruised knees beside my bed

Your inside me
Inside the chambers of my heart
A walking little wanderer
Inside the landscape of my thoughts

Your keeping my faith
Safe-guarded in my body
keeping the fire ignite
Against all the odds

Why won't they ever understand
I didn't choose to believe in you
That you came down from above
And planted your seed
Deep inside of me
Leaving to grow
This empty room
