I live in a cell

I live in a cell,
There is no day or night,
The floor is hard and cold,
I fear I am getting old.

I live in a cell,
My bones feel chill and pain,
My body is stiff and weary,
Only my thoughts remain.

I live in a cell,
The bulbs too stark and bright,
Without a window out,
I fear I am losing sight.

I live in a cell,
Whispers outside that I hear,
My mind plays slow tricks on me,
The beginnings of what I fear.

I live in a cell,
How soon till I leave this place?
My friends, my children, wait.
Won’t be long till I see your face.
