'Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.'

i've watered it with warm
summer raindrops and tears -

and drowned it in fears -

i've fed it my longings
and left-over dreams -

there it lies, barely beating
and ripped at the seams.
