I walk through the life of silent dreams A museum of sorts I passed by my reflection Not a mirror in site I was horrified As I stared into my face No, no, I could not My eyes could not view such horrors Shut tight for fear of light The journey was long ago Where emotions floated or not The soul fell into the sea I belong to no one Thus they say I am free I belong no where Thus I am in a prison I float inside a bottle Like a goldfish in bowl Waiting to be painted Knowing too well The drawing will never be done The wilted rose shall weep One more time For the face no one shall seek Incomplete

So asd Arthur... I trust this is not true to life. Great word usage... ',,,like a goldfish in a bowl,' '...the wilted rose shall weep one more time.' BRAVO my friend. Best wishes, Keith

This looks like an open prison to me; a form of house arrest, where the soul seeks the refuge of darkness. // paul
