Inside Looking Out
by Graham Wilson
She sits inside a cage looking out, watching the world pass her by.
One cage - bars that enclose her, the other cage within her own mind.
Trapped by consequences of past actions, she sees no way out.
Inside this place is another presence, an ancient predatory being.
It wants her for its own. Her will to fight it is gone. She will let it take her.
Outside they still search for a way to get her out
