Chained and bound
A chapter in the book Letters to the self
Can't get these thoughts out of my head
My mind has abandoned my body to bed
What day it is matters not to me
Lost in my mind wandering aimlessly
I can't get THEM to leave me alone!
Hurricane emotions have crashed me into the inner zone
I seem to have awakened in the midst of emotional debris
Dream walking in some....past....present....illusional....fantasy
Why is tomorrow always yesterday?
I have the look of one that sees within
Conscious not of now but then
Pondering questions in my mind
Seeking answers of a desired kind
Facing judgements of self persecution
Locked away in my cell of isolation
Doing time of undetermined duration
Outside my cell are partial faces
Vague are the sounds that seem like voices
Hard to hear
Dim to see
Please go away
Just leave me be
SANCTUARY this CELL has become
Safety now from everyone
Save the one who HAUNTS my mind
Who knows not day or time
I VOICE my THOUGHTS for HIM to HEAR
maybe he KNOWS the WAY out of HERE
Those WITHOUT, REGARD me STRANGE
It has been this way, SINCE my CHANGE
I THINK more NOW than EVER before
Because of THIS
The PAST has BECOME an OPEN door
For me to PEER in time and time again
To GLEAN the TRUTH of what was THEN
Now I know what
Means for others to say.... The closed eye opens the mind
To see thru the night into the day
Though I KNOW that I will NEVER be the SAME
I will RAISE this FLESH and LIVE AGAIN
I now SPEAK from ANOTHER MIND
CONJURED up from EXPERIENCE and TIME
What was HURT has GONE away
Now that the NIGHT has become the DAY
The CURE was only for ME to SEE
The WAY of LIFE is MYSTERY
To LIVE and LEARN is the WAY
To KNOW what TRUTH has to SAY
Those who FALL in it
Will be RAISED AGAIN
My HEAD is HIGH again
