The Solitary's Bind

The Solitary's Bind

A Poem by Fear Corrupts!
"

The thoughts of a fictional male character held in solitary confinement in 1963.

"

 

            The Solitary's Bind.

              

 

Government of Canada; 1963. 

Record of,          

Psychiatric Institution of GreenWood Ontario.

 Patient's Name: Jackson Anderson.

* Carved Words Found Engraved on the Wall of the Top Monitored Room:  113.

 

 

A taunting flat atmosphere,

regulated government's land.

The powerful institute has nothing to it,

it's so dull ; so bland.

 

The room's dimension's 10m by 10m,

Are just too confined for me.

I crave the open space,                   

the unlimited area,                            

that I can walk about as I please.  

 

They hold me here,

against my will,

tie me down, & drug me up.

I cannot even remember what crime,

I even committed.

Not for the life of me,

not my luck.

 

I don't think that I've been a bad person,

maybe different,

but certainly not bad.

I think freely,

individually.

So to lock me up,

is really quite sad.

 

They've lowered me down,

to this man in white.

Controlled ,

& walked all over.

My rights have been taken,

my life has been stolen.

I , a successful man,

a graduate of Harvard.

  

I haven't heard voices,

music, or laughter,

in such a horribly long time.

I'm here trapped.

I'm here trapped.

In this solitary bind.

 

Now,

I'm going crazy,

for real this time.

If I was insane before,

than now I'm really out of my mind.

This was an incredible write! And I swear to God, I was that man momentarily when I was reading this! I pictured the 10 X 10 cell along with the restraints. You're very visually pleasing and entertaining with your poetry. And a little sick too, which is good as well. You know I enjoy your s**t and keep writing and send me read request. I'll read whatever you got!

Hey, this is pretty cool.
Although, I must agree with Adeline on the fact that it needs a little bit of work - it is a little choppy.
But the rhythm is fine, & the story is devine. :)

xoxoxo.

I think this is great as a monologue, but you're right it does need work as a poem. It's a litle choppy is all, if you want to make it rhyme that is. If it's meant to be a prose poem than I'd keep it as it is. rhyexone.com is great for tough words btw. :D keep writing!

This is one of the more unique pieces i've seen in the point of view it projects. It makes the reader rethink the idea of mental institutions as prison camps for people with unconforming unconventional thinking. Just another way we attempt to control our people. You do such an exquisite job of injecting us, the reader, into that man's shoes. Making us feel as he feels. Awesome!

Simple yet complicated. A real description of his situation there. It was sad what happened to him but it can happen to anybody.. we can be different most of time in fact everyone is unique.. but we should understand we're not alone.. we live in a society.. and being different is not an excuse not to respect and abide by the rules of the community that made us one....
