Suspended Prison

Standing on the platform of
A confining, vertical shaft
Awaiting transportation to
...My first morning class

I press the button, and
Seconds into the hoist
The metal cage I'm in
Let's out an awful noise

I comprehend, in a panic
Suspended between floors
No way out, no one around
Trapped in a metal core

I call for help, not long after
A pleasant voice lets me know
It won't be long, before I'm free
From this prison, my newest foe

Once released, a sigh of relief
Sense of freedom restored
Grateful that no longer stuck
These wings continue to soar.

~Camille Rose Castillo 2010

    Hi Camille,an awful experience for any one.The only positive thing is using it to write good poetry which you have done.We poets always need something to inspire us,good or bad.And the joy after something awful is over when we are safe can always outweigh the fear and the pain.Thank you for sharing this and giving us pleasure through your writing,albeit after a fearful time. Love June.(S)

    Hey Mimi, Firstoff, you are not required to care, which is exactly why you should not comment at all, if you are incapable of commoin courtesy, alongside your lack of perception and intellect. ~Camille
