  2. The thoughts inside our heads were trapped like prisoners in a rusty jail cell. Inside our heads were colors and explosions and images of us taking on the world. One by one we would walk away from those who would mind and one by one there was no one left. When we smiled roses bloomed in our eyes and we felt whole. I can’t remember a day when you weren’t near…Until now. Now the roses in our eyes are wilted. And the explosions in our minds are no more. And the colors have faded. And the thoughts spilled all over the floor.
    But there’s still sunshine.

  3. He didn’t like feeling this. It was odd, it was new, it was suffocating. Why now? Most importantly, why her? He knew he can’t love her, but he’s become a prisoner of his own feelings. Trapped in her words, the look in her eyes, the scent of her hair. It’s maddening.

  4. His office cubicle was exactly 12X8 feet. He’d measured it more times than he cared to admit. Lots of care and money went into making it comfortable. But the shared partition meant there were no windows or music or any semblance of freedom to let off a little steam. He spared a longing glance at his fake wall and returned to typing.

  5. the bars stood vertically
    5cm apart

  6. outside of the cage, the invisible chains are adamantine. escape into the cell. away from the panoptic gaze of the exhausting other. liberation through isolation.

  7. Stuck inside my own lie of life. The walls of fear are stronger than those of hope. The bars of anger tight against the wall. I’m trapped prisoner inside a box of uncertainty.

  8. could have, should have
    snatched the key as
    i hugged you
    (oh, how it felt warm
    back then)-
    i’d be having a taste of freedom now
    in the absence of your presence.
    i shouldn’t have
    fall into your trap
    into the deep abyss of
    your affection.

    couldn’t have, shouldn’t have,
    entered your game of love
    because now I’m stuck
    as your prisoner, and i think
    i won’t be tasting the skies

  9. What are you a prisoner to? I am a prisoner of anxiety. A prisoner of obligation. A prisoner to capitalism. A prisoner of the patriarchy in a society cyclical & overwrought. I am a prisoner to others out of my own blown-up sense of shame & guilt, a prisoner to myself. What is your prison & where are the guards these days?

  10. He sat silently in the cage, his face pressed against the concrete wall, the bars opposite him fading in and out of his vision. His legs were tucked up against his chest, making his body as small as possible.

  11. When my brother would pick on me, iv always wanted him to some day be a prisoner of the law, and I would be a police officer, so I would be able to pick on him

  13. I am a prisoner in my own home. I get locked in my bedroom all day, I’m not allowed to come out. They treat me like a real prisoner. All I get to eat is stale, cold, hard bread and lukewarm water.

    By Faith Harrison on 10.06.2015

  14. I am a prisoner in the world. The bars are what separate my heart from yours, and you don’t even see it. I can’t even breathe right, or even talk. I can only blink, and hope that somehow you’ll understand what I’m trying to tell you and what I feel inside. My thoughts are prisoner inside my chest.

  17. There was a man in the county jail. He’d been there as long as anyone could remember. No one knew how old he was, no one could remember why he was there. But he’d always been there, the man in cell 9 in block C.

  20. Are we all not prisoners in some form or another? We may be free of physical barriers, but we are prisoners of our thoughts, our actions, or our relationships.

    By Audrey on 10.06.2015

  21. prisoners of the past are the present’s present;
    the previous lecturing marks of society…
    dwell in the riveting river of tears;
    where art thou now that were obesely happy..
    The prisoner unleashes wraths of freedom when kin play to win against all else

  22. He was a prisoner when it came to her love, it was almost like he was under a spell when he saw her. She adored him for he followed her like a puppy everywhere she went.

  23. Doyle flipped through the file Matt had given him. “Lucy” was, as he had suspected, born into money. He wondered if it was some genetic trait that turned people with money into sociopaths, or was there some kind of college course they were sent on. Her real name was Dolores Eugene, daughter of a banker from New York, but she had dropped out of society after a few years of running a charitable foundation for her father, claiming that while it ostensibly contributed to worthwhile causes, pledging donations to housing projects and schools, it was in reality laundering money for some of her fathers less sociable clients. To rebel against this, she had joined an underground group of hackers, dabbling in cyber terrorism and other intrigue, including smuggling information and other contraband into federal prisoners. This had gotten her hooked up with a group of right wing extremists, who ranted vaguely about overthrowing the government. Her file ended abruptly at this point, apparently as a result of pressure from the top to cease observation of her. Doyle threw the folder down on the car seat beside him, and stared into the distance. He had become tangled up in a very complicated mess, and he had to figure out how to cut himself free from this puppeteer without falling to the floor.

  27. locked up
    lonely cages
    made of bone
    beating stone
    into flesh
    raw and red
    hollow silence
    the moments
    which came

  28. There came a point when he had difficulty punching the keys because his thoughts and his feelings aren’t in sync, his body isn’t cooperating too; his fingers trembling, his eyes drooping, generally his whole body recuperating from last night when he had too much than he intended to drink. He wouldn’t do this first hour in the morning but he had too because his publisher told him so. One would think he’s a prisoner of his profession but little do they know that he chose this kind of life. All that whiskey flowing in his veins, it may worth something in the near future.

  32. I looked up from my chains and stared at the bright sun until my eyes watered. It had been so long since I’d lookup up from the ground. As I slowly shuffled my feet along the hard ground, I wondered how it had all come to this. Where was Amy?

  33. I was a prisoner of war till he found me, he set me free so I could do good with my life. I’m grateful for what he’s done I only wish I knew his name.

  34. Falling into a deep trance and walking in the halls into the dungeon, I saw the small flames of torches flicker through the walls. The slow steps echoed through the halls. For I was now a prisoner. Each cell was dark and gloomy. Who were in these small cells? Were they still alive? Why was I here?

  35. A prisoner to my thoughts and the places I am chained to but then I must endure that frustration for it may well be crucial to finding satisfaction. #isitstillnotfriday?

  36. I glared up at my captor, and he just sighed. “Really, if you just talked, this would go so much smoother.” He leaned down and laid his fingers against my cheek. “Come on, beautiful. I’d rather not put a bruise on your pretty face.” I spat in his eye, and as he reeled back with a dozen curses, I knew that I’d just burned that bridge…but I didn’t care. I was willing to die for this, to protect the family I’d found without meaning to.

  37. Thanks to decades of conditioning, he’s become a prisoner to the sheer probability of destruction. At any moment a flash of worst-case scenarios plays in his head for an instant, even during his morning oatmeal.

  38. Society held me prisoner. All I wanted was to return to where I came from – to go back to the forest, live off of the land. To listen to the winds and speak to the trees, to let the roar of the river shake the ground beneath my feet. I just wanted to let go, and I couldn’t do that here.

    By Caitlin URL on 10.06.2015

  39. i made myself my own prisoner. a prisoner of over-pleasure and indulgence. nothing is special any longer. nothing is fun.

    By BeccaJean URL on 10.06.2015

  40. I am trapped within a prison, the confines of my own mind. I am trapped by the things I want, by the things I need, by the wants of others, and their needs as well. I can’t escape, and I can’t breathe, but I’m fighting like hell to stay afloat. With all this water, no one knows that I’m crying. With all this water, no one can tell that I’m thrashing, not swimming,
