That is My Psychological Diagnosis

Skin pale white,
her hospital gown,
a moth filled wedding dress.
straps and shackles tie her down 
like a corset;
more buckles and ties than Harry Houdini.
she frantically turns
toward the door
like a two year old 
throwing a temper tantrum,
her hands wrapped around her body,
hugging her own hips.
Fingernails cut down to the cuticle 
just in case she had any ideas.
Dirty blonde hair becoming static
as if she rubbed a balloon on her scalp
a head of tranquility, restless hair from sex.
like a winded dog chasing its ball,
Her lips caught me off guard,
They were blue, not like 
the cold midnight sky,	
but a body  
bound for hypothermia
longing for freedom from restraint.

That is my psychological diagnosis
