Boxed Life--She Sleeps with a Nine

Boxed Life She sleeps with a nine waits for his face his distant return too close looming A tragic slime smooth stranger smoother lover pried into her life obsessed frantic impossible to reject she lives twisted a boxed life pulled by strings too tight An explosion is inevitable the storm's coming and she knows it so she sleeps with a nine and waits for his face

I love this. The title caught my attention - as if she's living her life in a metaphoric coffin, unable to truly live when she's constantly gripped by fear. Well done! Also, thank you for your kind comment on my poem!

I think I have heard before of something called a nine iron? Is that what you mean? If so, I really like the visual of this poor soul having to live with such fear. I hope she took up some martial arts!! Good one.

What a loaded write Joey and by no means do I mean this in a lighthearted manner... so sad how some women are in this situation and trapped in fear-- I really like how you say it "waits for his face"-- I interpret is a way of becoming numb and indifferent because of everything that he's put her through, he's just another in that box is never easy, one can only hope that women like her be free...
