Locked In Loves Words

04 Jun

In silence I suffer

Trapped in confined words

Desiring escape

Love found

And locked in silence

Behind a wall

Of falseness

The burden tormenting


A gaoler to my hearts


Of a loves

Solitary confinement


Eternal torment

Of love unrealised

Chances lost in time

Locked eternally

By the key

Of silence

Memories precious

To hold

As again

I suffer the pangs

Of denial

Of a hearts yearning

For love

To share

And cherish

Alone in my cell

Of life’s journey

Locked behind a wall

Of falseness

Secure by the key

Of silence

I ponder memories

Of lost love

And chances missed

Eternally tormented

Locked in silence

Regrets and memories

To keep a heart

From bleeding

In loves despair

In my cell of

Solitary confinement


By the key

Of words unspoken

    “…locked in silence behind a wall of falseness…” – that condemns us, for sure, Ian. Lovely poem.

    So Sad Ian, as we can sometimes lock away our emotions building barriers and walls of self imprisonment, denying ourselves to feel again in case we hurt too much.. We humans who have come to conquer our emotions upon this realm are often slaves to them.. As we let them ride over us trampling us underfoot. Or worst still as we ride roughshod over others.. .. One thing has been my own experience is that the only true thing we take with us is our memories, our thoughts and our feelings.. So I would say to any prisoner who is locked in loves words, is to let them go, for we only bind ourselves and our hearts in regrets and un-forgiveness, which led us to bitterness and sorrow.. The Key to any cell door of release… is to LET Go.. and let the words of bitterness be transformed into Love of forgiveness, which heals the bleeding heart…
    A wonderful Poem Ian set to some beautiful music .. I read this poem over and over, for I know what is when those Words get locked inside.. Dreamwalker

    Words should be so easy to utter, Ian, but sometimes something halts the utterance, so sad, but also such a strong message too. Keys can be turned and freedom gained. Lovely moody music, my friend. xPenx

    Awww… To love so deeply and not share it with the one you love, is so sad.
    Beautiful, bitter-sweet, prose.
    Thanks for the visit and lovely comment too 🙂
