Isolation


I am isolated in this isolation,
In this dark cell,
With darkness darkening me every second,
I am isolated in this isolation,
There’s no hope, No love,
Neither peace nor noise,
But just the uneven silence,
Attacking my mind, my heart, my soul;
Decaying me every moment,
I am isolated in this isolation,
There’s nobody to hear me,
There’s nobody to answer me,
It’s just me,
To hear myself scream,
That: 'I am isolated',
Prisoner to this-
Haunting prison,
I am isolated,
Stuck in myself,
where there’s no air,
I have already ceased breathing,
This isolation has already killed me,
Let’s do this formality of death sentence,
For I am isolated, in this isolation,
Another dead body to this silent grave.

    Fantastic! What a moving description of a prisoner's life! Some lines are ringing in our ears. Ten marks.
    You might have experienced the pain when your nearone or dearone had been put into the prison. It is a rose bloomed out of fire and mire. (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
