Prisoner of my Mind

Considered my personal best, a poem very intimate, being published years after writing it. Although specifics are unclear to the reader, the poem rants the dilemma of a dual minded situation.

Thoughts ream on so endlessly
Pent on them I thoughtlessly
A path of no return is this?
"Free me from this," I fervently wish.

Muddled up as in a maze
Bound in chains, I can only gaze
At a hopeful future so bleak
Freedom is all I now seek

A convict of crime of conflict of mind
Or do in me a victim I find?
Matter it does not in this game
Coz in the end it hurts all the same

Spun this web round me so tight
Struggling hard now to unwind
Why is the mind so complicated?
Leaving me swirling and all dazed.

Trust it must I, though so caught!
Coz battles hard fought are never lost
But all this at what dear cost?
In the end, part of me is surely lost!

Never felt like it. There are so many more which haven't left that book I told you about. This time, the time was just right for this one.
And thanks :)

Hey,... that's an awesome one.. wonderful chained phrases.. :) probably the best set of lines that I have read so far.. that can best describe the duality that exists in one's mind.. and the effects that causes...

Loved these lines:

'Spun this web round me so tight
Struggling hard now to unwind
Why is the mind so complicated?'

I guess that's the speciality of everyone's state of mind. If left uncomplicated, I personally feel there is no joy in life :)

A really good one!
