Trapped in a body broken

Betrayed by a brain unwired

Stifling fears unspoken

Pondering sins transpired


Trapped in a cage of my making

Betrayed by my own two hands

In the corner cowered and shaking

Dreaming of travel to freer lands


Trapped in an anxious sand pit

Betrayed by the ones I trust

Looking for an ounce of respite

Stomping my dreams to dust


Trapped in this place of delusion

Betrayed by my perception black

For I failed to see in the confusion

There’s an exit there in the back

    1. Thank you Katie, I’m so glad you appreciated it. I’ve recently started writing poetry as a form of therapy and I’ve found it very helpful, even more so when it reaches others. Thanks for the follow as well!
