Locked Away

I look
Once again through the keyhole
At sights unseen
Obscured by darkness
And everything in between

Lost in the abstract
Of a world unknown
A place locked away
From the prying eyes
Of those who come by day

No one can fathom
What I feel
As I sit here alone
With nothing but solitude
Just skin and bone

I’ve dwelled within these walls
Unable to break the chains
The light of day
Warm against my skin
Keeping the demons at bay

But when night falls
They return
To plague my reality
Unable to escape
I will never be free
