" Do you know what makes prisons disappear? Every deep genuine affection. Being friends, being brothers, loving, that is what opens the prison, with supreme power, by some magic force. Without these one stays dead. But whenever affection is revived, there life revives."

Frozen Time, by C.D. Nelson


Frozen Time
A minute takes an hour
an hour takes a day.
That`s how the time goes by
when you`re locked away.
The sun never rises
therefore it never sets.
For us time seems frozen
sitting alone in our regrets.
Each day like the last
in places such as these.
Forgotten by our family
ignoring all our pleas.
Dragged to the edge of sanity
by days with no end in sight
Creating ways to get us through
to the long and restless night.
Our minds spin like carousels
full of brightly colored horses
Pick and choose rumors to believe
as we consider the sources
Hopeless feelings of despair
emotions come on strong
so much time to sit and think
of where it all went wrong.
