"Penning"   8 - 9 - 06

penned in a space far too flat

these words are caged on paper

forced and subdued into their place

once thoughts never actions

but in my mind

they rule, day in and lights out

rocking my mind

locking an anuerism

pent into a space far too tight

threatening to explode

my mouth cannot release

these thoughts inside

my ears hear the friend but

my heart cannot beat these thoughts

so my eyes

expanding and contracting

with my eyelids flapping

once lonely thoughts

join the world

as prisoning pupils

prism these thoughts

dividing them, conquering them

and expelling the toxin

of pent up thoughts...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

in the computer room... release but alone... friends and loves unite... in a room far too tight.
