Walls of bone and flesh Tree

Sealed shut into it

like one of Poe’s tales


Cement made of blood

Bricks made of skin

like an organic jail


Is there a way out?

From the outside comes a laugh,

quiet and evil,

tasting the despair in my scream

rejoicing as my strength fades

building the wall I’m now stuck into


I am the only one to see

the ruthless homicide being committed

against my life


Will I ever find a way out of humanity?

  1. Jose this is a compelling piece.

  2. I enjoyed reading this!
    It reminds me a touch of Sepultura’s song: Inhuman Nature.
    Cool theme (mine’s the same! ha ha)
    Peace to you,
    (my posts for potluck)

  3. Jose, this is haunting and lovely. Your thoughts run deep and these words shine. “Will I ever find a way out of humanity?” A question we all ask ourselves, if we’re smart. Thanks.

    Paz, Amy Barlow Liberatore

  4. no way out at times,
    but keep trying.
