Dark Dreamscapes Poetry Week 2 Prompt 2
Locked inside
my cell of flesh
bars of living bone
locked in
locked in

Blind inside
my prison skull
eyes as dark as night
caged in
caged in

Mute inside
without a voice
I cry but no one hears
shut in
shut in

Alone inside
Unheard, unseen
My unrequited tears
sealed in
sealed in

===

With a nod to Ogden Nash.
