caged in the confines of mind...



caged in the confines of mind 

thought now a life of its own 

built on a day dream whim 

mindlessness fueled the drone 

of endless unnecessary thought 

expanding illusions and what ifs 

grandeuring the grass greener 

mocking the unthinking stiffs 

thinking in circles and squares 

thoughts rebound and grow 

go round and return bigger 

upsiding my head, what a blow 

images that never shut up 

trapped in the confines of mind 

thoughts materializing before me 

building worlds of deaf and blind 

caged in the confines of mind 

iron grated, mind-made cage 

hardly notice the thickening bars 

thoughts turn another mind page
