ENTRENCHED IN ISOLATION


Show me the way
Show me the way
To go home

Say I to the prisoner
Sober

So deeply entrenched
In isolation
Distance has become habitual

A hermit’s enclosure
A criminal cell
And I am loathe to leave

We are in trepidation
Of the familiarities for which we long
Intimacies lost

Freedom’s day is dawning
And it would be easier not
To meet it

The return to normality
Frightens us

As the possessed were frightened
Of Jesus when He was about
To deliver them
