The Bell Jar – Heather Carr-Rowe

rooted in expectations
that twist like a vine
creeping up my limbs
squeezing my voice
into mere whispers
of who I am
of who I can be
I struggle in fear
rip at the weeds
and my voice rises
rattles the glass walls
of my conscience
of my binary world
that holds me caged
