Padded Room

PADDED ROOM

Sunshine
begets
hope enclosed in
padded rooms
all over the world

The jumping
possibility of the
day ahead
seemingly open
with purpose

But each day
gives way to night
and the demons
seep under doors
and through
keyholes

To comfort you
hiding in
tattered pockets
where coins
used to play

Nothingness
pervades as we
slumber as long
as humanly possible
expecting dreams
to take us away

At least
farther than
the reach
that
padded rooms
possess
