The Wall

image
the experiment
a glass wall
placed in a cage
i cannot cross

as time passed
i learned to stop trying

when the glass was removed
i still remained
contained
held back
by what no longer exists

like a glass wall
my emotions
captive
deep inside

never allowed to grieve
the pain
pushed back
doubt
confusion
alone

when i needed to cry
they denied
pretending
life would just go on
the same

when i tried to say
how i felt
anger
came back at me

so much fear
of simply feeling

what have they done to me

voices
so loud
still screaming at me

the glass wall
removed

their presence
no longer needed
to silence
me

my emotions
are like rapids
moving
with such a force
inside

no longer
able
to hold them in
and yet
unable
to let them out

i can’t seem
to sort through
the grief
the loss

will i always
have this pain
and sadness
a broken heart
no one can see

overwhelmed
feeling trapped
inside
of me

there’s no way out

the experimenters
have all gone now
i am alone
and yet
this wall
remains
