Interior separations

Some part of me,
some huge and anxious
primal beast
lies trapped behind
some bright invisible wall,
imprisoned by my tidy brain
whose pressed white shirt
is crumpled only lightly
by the pack of concepts
learned along the way.
This neatly packaged
carefully constructed self
stares through, but dares not look
into those frightened eyes.
When will I breach the boundary
to touch and reassure the heart
that beats so frantically within?
