Image for the poem #Prisoner#


i am a prisoner
of my mind who
craves control

over my soul
& my thoughts

Over my belly

i let her in gave
her a home of

which She is
now the owner

it's lonely here
cold & hopeless

She won't let me
listen to my needs

won't give me the
proper nutrients

i'm stuck in this
prison and i can't
seem to break free

am i sentenced to life?
