Beyond This Prison Door

by Stephen Paden

The room is dark

But my eyes burn

into the floor

Open to anything

My heart is burning red

With blood

Thick or thin

It spreads out from my body

Indiscriminately

Capillaries burned into the cracks

Four walls, no windows

Two hearts

No boundaries

One life

Now spreading on the floor

Reaching out

To freedom

Beyond this prison door
