Locked in

a poem by Charles Fisher, UK

She battered herself of the door
She fell to her knees on the floor
Locked in
Locked in
Admitted into the secure unit
Her mind jumped over the edge
How long. How long?
Did she stand on the ledge
Between sanity and insanity
In the wheel chair before the lift
Inside the general hospital
A short distant from the mental health unit
Wheeled along the corridor with pipes
Running along the edges of the wall
She wishes that she can escape along those pipes
But, those pipes hiss and hiss hot steam,
That echoe in her mind. Those pipes are,
Are after her. Her thoughts are at it again
She wonder where the pain of the mind,
Is going to end
