Vacant Tapestry

Reasons why
I’m tied up inside
locked inside walls
without any halls
Childhood stripped
in disease’s grip
Friends were not cheap
unable to keep
Never feeling enough
as though I’d been struck
in the face by a rock
apart from the flock
Broken up family
unraveling tapestry
Reality and dreams
not what they seem
Opposite reflections
backwards connections
Releasing the sting
came forth to bring
A lighter perception
and brighter reception
but part of me still fights
in the quiet of night
to hold myself back
from imagined attack
