Chain Linked Fence

Chain linked fence
Guarding my emotions
Protecting my thoughts
Keeping me in

Chain linked fence
Letting nothing out to run about
Limiting all
From behind a mental wall

Chain linked fence
Caged, confined, constricted
Bottled in and bound by lies
Forever cursed until I die

This chain-linked fence
That I cannot stand
I’m bound to snap
In chains I’m damned

This is a really good poem, I like your repetition of the chain linked fence in every stanza.

Wow! This was really cool. The way you started each stanza the same way really left an impact. It's a great technique! Five stars!

Its really cool how the chains both keep dangerous things out but also constrict this person in terms of his emotions. I really like it, keep it up!!!

Wow i love that. I love the way you made metephorical chains seem more like real ones. It's something everyone can relate to and it's filled with pain and anger. It's perfect.
