Alcatraz Prison, a.k.a. My Mind

I find myself lost,
Darkness blankets me,
While fear swallows me,
Light is now but an inky smoke.

I grope,
Searching for a sign,
Pleading for a reason,

To all my pain,
To all my sorrow,
Why?

No one answers me,
When I cry from my lungs,
Desiring to be loved,
To be wanted.

A light burns through the barrier of shadows,
My eyes open,
Only to find that my heart is imprisoned,
The lock and key dismantled,
And I am caged within my own mind.
