Trapped - Poem by Patricia Kelley

She's in a life with no escape; planning her escape.
She stands in the enemies trenches.
She can see it, in her mind.
It's time to unwind.
She nervously wrenches.
Growing tighter, by the minute,
She doesn't know how to relax.
She acts.
What, she would give to have another woman's freedom.
But, she fears no escape,
Bound, as if, with Duct Tape,
Her emotions all twisted up.
She's about to give-up!
The only emotion, she feels, is fear.
Her sad lifeless eyes tear.
She once dreamed of being someone's wife.
But, he constantly cuts her with his verbal knife.
Trapped to be someone's wife, she doesn't love.
Feeling unloved.
As a mouse with its head caught in a noose,
She only wants to be loose.

She once had a life full of dreams.
Now, all she has are shattered dreams.
The windows of her eyes are hollow from yesterday's sorrow.
She fights within herself to borrow time for tomorrow, only sad days follow.
Growing ill in her marrow, she keeps saying to herself, I'll leave tomorrow.
