trapped behind massive window panes
invisible and all-constraining
squeezing out all life
with passive tenacity

silent screams for help
tormenting goes unheard
silent desperation
blocking the restless spirit

only the attentive friend
can see the silent cries
transporting the heart to liberty
from those self-protective layers
