The Stone-Frame by Author Allison Grayhurst

Creative Talents Unleashed

The stone-frame sings

my threshold, sings my

heart’s futility. It is

so hard a cage it makes

my knuckles crack, it breaks

my bones from too much leaping.

The stone-frame wishes to be my womb, but

could never be a comforting hovel,

or resting ground away from

world-wind and flame.

The stone-frame maims my voice

from protesting, strikes a match

to my endurance and holds me in

its damp, dusty dorm.

The stone-frame lets me dream of miles

away from its door, but never lets more

than my imagination go wandering.

The stone-frame is my perception trapped

in faithless monotony, is my coward smile

that fears the chaos outside

its grey, unchanging walls.
