Plain Jane 2-Return to Cell

**Continuation of Pretty Colors 1 & 2
Inky black
silken
binding my arms
my legs.
Slowly consciousness
returns
waking me from my fugue.
I remember
the cell door opening
of its own accord.
I danced without
under the moonlight
while making my escape.
So how?
How is it I am back here?
Locked within the cell
drugged
groggy
feeling like hell?
I am strapped to the bed
no way to turn
head bound
kept stationary
all a ploy to drive me insane.
I know the truth though
they are afraid
Badass Jane
she will return.
Sept. 7/18

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
