Trapped

unknown person putting hands on glass window
Trapped in this prison

Walls slowly closing in

Can't breathe

Can't eat

Can't sleep

Numb but still filled with pain

No escape

Nowhere left to run

Let me know what you think of this poem “Trapped.” I don’t know if this poem is about something specific. For me, it’s more about the different feelings of trapped we all experience. I think we all experience it in different ways. Personally, I have been feeling a little trapped in multiple ways. I guess it’s just life sometimes. We often are stuck in situations in life we can’t get out of. It sucks but there is nothing we can do about it. You just have to admit to yourself that it sucks but at the same time it’s not the end of the world. That’s what my therapist told me and I thought that’s great advice so I’m telling sharing it with you guys here.

Have you ever felt trapped? What made you feel this way? How did you get over these feelings? Have you gotten over them? What advice would you give someone experiencing these feelings? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. (My perspective maybe incorrect) Some pains aren’t meant to be escapable, we live, we learn, and endure.

  2. I love how this poem can be an allegory for different types of prisons we sometimes find ourselves in. Depression, toxic relationships — even an actual prison. Despite it all, we fight on! 🙂

    1. Thanks and yes there are many prisons we can find ourselves in. We are all dealign with different things. Absolutely, these prisons are never permanent so we have to keep fighting!

  3. I think you described my job. They only pay enough so you have to keep coming back even though you hate being there. Just enough to get your essentials paid never anything you truly want. Trapped in a vicious cycle or slave to the grind.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that but I think a lot of people are stuck with jobs like these. And they purposely pay that way so you have no choice but to work there. I hope you find a much better job soon.

  4. I can’t imagine how many people are experiencing this and the variety of circumstances! To be honest, I felt the pain reading it, so I hope you are doing good! there is always a door somewhere to open but it needs courage and faith to look for it.

  5. I was going to say “this is a vibe” but someone beat me to it. Good piece. (And to the extent you’re pulling from your own feelings – as I guess all poets do – I hope the feelings are short-lived.)

  6. Yes, sometimes we feel that way. I mean for both men or women, but for women especially. We can only try to be more flexible and more resourceful. And if that’s not enough, we just have to endure it and find some pleasure in the life we don’t really prefer…
