    Thanks for the reply. I should really start using more punctuation. It's interesting to know that you interpreted our 'chains' as society. I actually meant religiously but society also works. :)

    Hey all,
    Tell me what you think of my poem. Please also check out the other ones that I have on my page.

    Confined living

    Words carefully said
    Boundaries slowly laid
    Passions made dead
    Friendships made instead

    We could sleep under stars
    In a country full of scars
    That you dream of
    Like a lover after divorce

    We could lose ourselves in the moment
    Let go of this foolish lent
    Succumb to desire
    Turn ashes into fire

    We could forget the work
    Forget the boredom and the sulk
    Pour it all down the drain
    Go dance in the rain

    We could fly free
    Yes, you and me
    Just seize the day
    Throw all else away

    But we don't do we?
    The safety bars are too strong
    And I don't want it to go wrong
    So we don't, at least not me

    Thank you

[Hata Bildir]
