Trapped

A boring, gray day inspired these thoughts...

Trapped

Bound to wood and steel,
a prisoner, I gaze
through dirty windows
at gray skies and moldering brick.

The smell of dirty air,
smog-filled and city-scented,
fills my nostrils,
thick and choking.

Boredom, a heavy weight
lies upon me.
My brain, wrapped in a cocoon
of disuse, slumbers.

The spirit within me longs to run,
leaving behind my bonds
to soar free
in open and clean spaces

So I dream - images flashing before me,
keeping me sane
until once more, time, ticking away,
releases me.
