the captive heart

Inside these walls around my heart
is still and dead, silent and dark
Doors are locked up fierce and tight
there is no sound this time of night

I stare up at the brooding moon
the distant stars cant fight the gloom
inside the glacial, bitter cold
passion sleeps within the soul

Emotionís beast roams through these halls
inside my heart, inside these walls
Seeking comfort, craving touch
and never finding quie enough

Inside these walls, pain still attacks
a thousand memories fade to black
Silence rules the remnants of
this captive heart, untouched by love

Nice imagery - particularly in the second stanza....

------------------
Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.
~ ≤1592 Wm. Shakespeare ~ Romeo & Juliet ~ ii. iv. 75
