Poem: Imprisoned

By Ashley Bates
Imprisoned in a tomb that was once called my soul
I hideaway and close my eyes to find some peace within
I try to search through memories for a time when I was whole
Yet all I find are nightmares and points of original sin
I breathe in deep breaths yet only anguish do I exhale
I grip my knees to my chest and bury my face to cry
I try to flee and run away from this life that feels like hell
Yet here I am dusting off the heart that simply refuses to die
