Poignant! It invokes the memory of what I described as sliding down a tunnel into this dark place where I didn't feel the pain and no one was there to deal with. It was my home place for years and finally got so lonely I had to start coming out or die, I'm very happy now that I chose life! Thanks for the poem , it is a beautiful description of a not so beautiful place. I hope you're looking back at it, if not now, soon!
I'm a freeman now, his authority's dead
no pain monger lies in my comfortable bed!
