I Want To Be Jailed


I want to be jailed
Confined
Isolated
Insulated
Fr om all vagaries
Of emotionally threatening
Situations
Recent developments
Make me feel so
I am unable to control
The impacts of
Happenings around
On my otherwise peace loving self
I am agitated disturbed
The one solution I see is
That I am jailed
Confined
Isolated
And insulated from all these
Insulated and jailed physically though
My mind and intelligence
Will not allow me
To stay in peace
For they have the ability
To recount the past
Extend contents of those gone events
To the present
And will pose in front of me a future
With all negative anticipations
Pushing me into
A well of emotions
I will feel small
Unenthusiastic
Incapable of handling effectively
Emotionally challenging occurrings
Still I fell a solution if
I am jailed
Confined
Isolated and
Insulated

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
