    Here do I sit, destination in mind
    Not quite sure what I expect to find
    Prepared to face uncertainty and fear
    For I know in my heart that my heart is not here

    Trapped by a life of emptiness and pain
    If only I wasn't tied down by this chain!

    Should I pull against my binds till I bleed?
    Should I starve myself so the vultures may feed?
    Though I sit here in this cage slowly dying
    My captor pays no mind to my desperate crying

    For no one can see your tears in the rain
    I would walk away now if not for this chain

    So here do I sit and feast my eyes on
    A glimmer of hope shining on the horizon
    Close my eyes and whisper a prayer
    That some day I'll be free to travel there

    But for now these dreams are envisioned in vain
    For I am unable to cut through this fucking chain!!!

    Thanks to both of you :hug:

    I'm glad my poetry doesn't completely suck. Or maybe it does and you're just being nice, but either way, I thank you :smile:

    I wasn't being nice, just honest. You did an excellent job painting a picture in my head with your words, and the feelings came through clear. I think you should keep writing.

    ((gentle hug))

    Well thank you :smile:

    I've been writing, on and off, for close to 25 years now... I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. It's just a means of expressing myself... whether or not I have any talent is quite honestly irrelevant to me. I gave up on my dreams of being an author (or poet) many years ago. Now it's pretty much just a hobby.

    You have a way with words, it's like you bring them to life. They're not just words, but feelings and emotions. :hug:
