container…

walls
stainless steel
no ambient light
penetrating this space
no reason
for sound
to be made
this is not
a place for
conversations
or
negotiations
it is not for
you
or
your civilized friends
that constantly make war
under the flag of peace
this is
a shelter
from
your society
a self-contained environment
designed to maintain
sanity
it is the shelter
of my heart
and
the doors
are locked

  1. if in this container resides your heart, I bet the door will open up for some beloved, intrigued by the emotions that lay inside the heart itself.
    Kudos to your lovely composition.

  2. But poetry and your friends surely have the key! I am getting back to blgdom today and look forward to reading some of your posts that I have missed.
