wishing for more

I’m here in my room,

there is no lock on the door

but still I’m not able to get out

I’m in a tower of disappointment

far away from the rest of the world

I can’t see outside

even though there is a window

because it hurts to look and see

a world I can’t be a part of

I’m not sure how I got here

I’m holding the door closed from the inside

not sure what I’m hiding from

the light from the outside hurts my eyes

so I keep them closed

blind to what’s around me

wishing I could get out

but afraid to let myself go

out where I could get hurt

I don’t know how I got here

or why I’m so afraid

I wish I could open the door

and just let in a little light

and maybe I’ll be able to go all the way

and see the world again

and know that

it’s safe outside

I just need you to help me open it a little

to let me know it’s ok

then maybe I’ll be able to loosen

my grip and step out into the light.

I need to hear the music so I can sing the song that’s waiting for me

it’s so dark in here

my eyes have grown accustomed to it

I’m afraid that soon I won’t be able to stand it any longer

please show me why I’m so afraid

maybe I don’t need a key

maybe I just need you to tell me it’s ok to let go of this door

and that I can come out

I’m not being punished

no one locked me in here

I can come out when ever I want to 




and see the light and hear the music again

I stayed in prison forth years. Mine was a mental prison, although I had occasion to visit the other kind for a few years. We make our own prisons and we can make our escape. Happens every day. Looks like you might be making you as we speak.

I know this feeling very well. I have my own prison to live in. God be with you and help you thru this. Keep writing, and writing and helps and much cheaper than therapy.:)

Blessings and 'light',

Welcome to authorsden. Can kind of identify with this write, sometimes we can imprison ourselves. Liked the hope verse on your bio. God bless. Baz
