Lost Inside

Form: Abbreviated Haiku I

to reach outside from within
the box
that holds me trapped inside walls
of thought
beneath the rocks of despair
and fear
that fear chaining my heart down
held fast
hidden behind the past hurts
and tears
tears I have refused to cry
but now
I weep all those unshed tears
alone
the walls around this old box
too thick
for love to reach my heart to
touch me
