Sitting in her Cell


Sitting in her cell

she pondered her mistake,

the bars set her apart

she dwelled on her self-hate.

Perhaps she should have died

her heart beat as it ached

the ferry sounds forlorn

she’ll never catch a break.

No one feels her shame

her loneliness just hurt

no one seemed to care

destruction may now lurk.


Sitting in her cell

lonely as can be,

feeling all their eyes

shackled so they see.

Loneliness has rocked

the cell so very small

surrounded as it seemed

the ferry mourns so long.

Sitting in her cell

every sound from far,

confinement stilled her limbs

it is so very hard.
