55-The Cage

Fidgeting between
Discordant tones
Lashing me             
With expectations
To be something
And I envy the space
For its inexistence
And I push a thumb
Into my ear
I can’t hear
But that doesn’t make me deaf

I peel the pictures
Off my memory
Before me
Light light
Within the bars of the cage

Check Out G-Man

I picture the Raven by Poe in this 55. But yet, a caged in soul. It's super.

My 55 is a double whammy this week, two for the price of one. Of course, as always, you need to scroll down below my Friday's Show n Tell.

The link is HERE I'd love to have you stop by for a visit.

Wow -- these are awesome words, Your Reverie. Peeling the pictures off your mind, I really love that line, as lashing you with expectations.

I loved the feeling of being trapped in this one. It's something a lot of people can relate to. :)
