"Confinement of Escape"

Unable to intervene for myself
Viewing my life in this space
Animalistic memories of survival
Of which there is no legible trace
Peeling walls envelop my body
Sleep my escape into sweetness
Mulling it over within the confines
Of a detached mind unable to show sympathy
Even for myself
As I grind upon my own thoughts
Never seeming to wonder
Where the beast within resides
Weather and days are of no concern
In the confines of my survival
Refusing to become victim
I rise to the occassion
Lifting myself from the place
Where I once groaned
Upon the high wall is my abode
Far from the reaches
Of those who would place me on display
In a world where language
Has no more meaning
Than the setting of a rising sun
Now the gain is my mastery
Taking what I need to keep
My mind afloat in the unforgiving sea
That it might coax me
In my plight to escape its evil clutches
