Blind, Deaf and Thoughtless
Shadow Passes - Light Remains
One Day ...she said
>> View all 178
Sometimes reality is not so pretty.
She paces the cage
Restrained by expectation
Snarling at hands that control a life, not theirs
Temper badly frayed
Haunted by dreams of freedom
Submission to another's will is enforced
Yearns for a haven
A home of her own making
Her domain, where she can be true to herself
Wild spirit confined
Life has not kept its promise
Helplessly bound, there is no escape for her
Nonetheless, time passes
Too late for dream fulfilment
Diversion finally comes to her, in death.
