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',

From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm by Gwendolyn Thomas Gath

Perhaps "..Quiet Storm" will help rekindle old flames buried and long forgotten or express the love so deeply locked inside of your soul longing to be released. Regardles..
