Babble of Voices

Locked within my cage
I can not hear your cry
for those words
have no meaning
as I blindly struggle
to free myself
from the limitations
of my mind -
those bars are firmly fixed.

Your lips I see moving
but no sound escapes
to grace my ears -
for all hearing
is directed to that
static frenzy of voices
within my soul
forcing their way
to consciousness.

I try to listen,
to hear your words -
but the babble within
drowns external music,
leaving a void,
a black hole through
which I can not pass
and from which
I have no freedom.
