Donald P. Goodman III

Version 1.0,
Confined and trapped, an animal without a route to move along his path, who can't go anywhere but here, for every struggle tightens up the snare that keeps him trapped and makes the pain e'er more acute the longer with this prison he is in dispute and ever tighter draws the noose around his bare and fragile neck, and ever harder comes the air as tight-enclosing walls e'er tighter persecute. He fears the jail more than the jailer; even prayer as all the walls close in seems, like him, trapped and mute within his jail and in his mind; he cannot bear his mind so full to burst with abject, trapped despair!
His prison holds him tightly, so he cannot see whatever might outside his mind's cruel prison be.
