Bound

Bound to this room
Hobbled don’t stray
Dream to be free
Escape from these
Invisible ropes
A spell too strong
For any soul
To break and live
Am I awake?
Dream me a path
Cross calm oceans
A starlit night
Surely madness
Thoughts of escape
Claustrophobic
Insanity
A caged creature
Unnatural
Never was born
Not to wander
To roam so far
The breath of life
To live again
To slip the chains
But no, not now
Now I awake
The nightmare real
Tight-tethered tamed
shackled, secured
This ill-conceived
Bleak illusion
Will break me if
Eternity

I have blogged about my visual art for a while but have only started to dabble with writing and words in my second wordpress blog https://wordsofdelights.wordpress.com/
