Dark Poetry: Imprisoned in My Mind

Imprisoned in My Mind

Behind the fiery sparks,
That light my intertwined thoughts,
I’m held,
Imprisoned in my mind.

An entire other world,
That faces off with the reality
That I see in front of my innocent eyes.

…Imprisoned in my mind,
I confront the every-day tasks at hand…
Fighting off a reality, that
I only wish to escape from time to time…

Behind a glass of imagination,
In other colorful worlds that only I create,
With safe places to escape,
Imprisoned in my mind.

I fight for a world of peace.
I fight for a world not at war.
I fight for a world with harmony.
I fight for a world of equality….
I fight for a world filled with love…
But for now,
I stand here, gripping these safe bars,
In a world, in which I have built with hope and possible dreams
As the tears fall, glistening in the moonlight,
I wait for change,

Until then, I stay…
Imprisoned, in my mind.
