The silent touch

Brushes along your skin

You may think

You are alone

With your mind

With your thoughts

Captured within

Insanity

Never satisfied

Fighting inside

To break free

Chains binding you

Not setting you free

A caged animal

Wildly kicking

Struggling to release

Feeling stuck

No hope

No peace

Everyone seems like

The enemy

Cannot find your happiness

The tiger is hidden

Looking in the mirror

All that you see

The weak doe

Staring back at you

Screaming inside

Waiting

Wondering

When it will all change

Hating all outside

That condemn

Hope seems far away

Cannot see clarity

Afraid

Worry time will not stay

Wasted off and beyond

Hatred displayed in front of you

From all sides

Grabbing you by your

Wrenching

Beating

Throbbing

Heart

Trying to stay alive

In a whisper

A voice from outside

Thundering then loudly

Freedom is in the mind

      Caroline - You are a wonderful talented individuals, expressing the emotions perfectly. I found this so relate-able and very accurate. Sometimes, after oppressed by so many around me, my only freedom is through my mind.
