    Locked in my cage, I stare at the emptiness;
    this very emptiness possesses my soul -
    we are one.

    The months pass, as do the years,
    yet as time progresses, it loses all relevance.
    I sit here trapped in a recurring nightmare, never to awaken.
    I feed on my own self-pity -
    I never hunger. I merely exist,
    captive in this asylum, biding my time;
    my sole gratification, inebriated isolation.

    The door to my cage is ajar, as is often the case,
    yet it's pointless to leave;
    each journey leads me back
    to this God-forsaken realm of suffering and despair.

    Long ago, I was free;
    I remember faces, smiling faces.
    A different me, in a different time -
    it was a time of fulfillment, of togetherness, of love.
    Then one day the fantasy ended, and I was here . . .
    but enough about the past; I must face my reality.

    Distant voices race through my head,
    as I stave off insanity.
    But this time, the voice is real.
    Unsure of its origin, I feel my soul is not as cold; my burden lighter.
    Though I smile, I soon shiver in frustration.
    Tears stream down my cheeks,
    as I cannot deny that the other voice is my own,
    as my rationality succumbs to my imagination.
