Escape Artist

Falling through the holes of Time, 
I bequeathed what once was mine 
The Hands Of Fate are quite unkind, 
As Destiny hath me confined
In torture Towers- abuse of Power!
While in my cell I quiver- cower!
With Guards dispatched, a plan I hatch
To escape within the hour
Though, Lo! I compose perplexing prose 
To make a point that no one knows 
Who I am, or my haunting woes, 
But, oh, my hope doth grow and grow 
Though my Heart swells and heaves 
The broken Love's I haven't grieved 
Locked in a past I cannot leave, 
But in myself I do believe!

    I like most of this poem, just a personal thing though are you sure you want to write about the poem itself in that one line about prose? I don't know. great poem about the man in a bell tower or simply a heart broken person.

    Hi, Karl; thanks for the read and review. I thought it might add a touch of irony to talk about the poem inside the poem. It may not have been my best idea; I can concede as much. But thanks for taking time to leave a comment; much appreciated :)

    Words steeped in grief but also steeped in strength, a friend gave me this saying the other day, IT IS EASY FOR THE STRONG TO BE BRAVE, I pondered much on these words, I believe you to be strong, though I feel your heart right now, my thoughts are with you on this one, have a blessed day, heal, and be real, love xxx

    Thanks, Rose. I wanted there to be a sense of triumph in this piece, that despite all the adversities, I still believe in myself and my capabilities. A lot of my pieces end on a note of defeat or hopelessness, but sometimes I do find my inner strength. Thanks for the read and review :)
