Confined Forever

Confined Forever

A Poem by Sarah Marie

Nailed to my bed,
I am on display;
Confined in its center,
I cannot help but lay
In the desolation, 
The turmoil attacking
My innocent, polluted
Mind, the fear backing
Away with each step
That hatred and pain take;
My head resting on trust,
I never want to wake
And discover that it
Is nothing more than mere lies.
I fear for myself,
And every night all I do is cry
Myself to sleep though
I know I must be on my guard
Lest agony and torture
Rip at my skin with shards
Of sharpest glass;
Oh, how I am afraid!
I wish I could forget
Everything that has made
Me who I am today;
But if I follow my heart,
I know that the world will end
And my life will fall apart.
I lie atop a meaningless mattress
And under silk secrets;
I’ve tried to find others,
But I am all who fits
In the impressions in the center
Of the bashful, banishing bed-
Have I nowhere to rest,
Nowhere to lay my head
While demons devour my mind
From the inside out?
My cell is soft and comfy,
But I cannot help but want to shout-
Have I nowhere to go?
Have I no escape or rescue?
With judgment hazy and clouded,
What on earth is one to do?
For all to see on display,
I am nailed in its center of sin;
For all to mock and jest,
I am one, I and my burdens.

There are chains in the soul that cannot be broken alone. This cuts and bites to the core of your being. Please know that for every demon who brings a poison to quiet you, a thousand angels stand ready to bring your healing tonic.
