Could you explain to me what it is that your poem is trying to say?
Forgive me for my ignorance.
This poem was written in a time of deep personal pain and reflection for me. I saw a picture of a girl dancing in a deep crimson dress, with a bilowy skirt. And it occurred that there really is so much beauty in this world, but that I was so wrapped up in my pain (self-inflicted prison of pain) and myself that I could hear the beautiful music but that it wouldn't be beautiful to me, because I wasn't truly appreciating anything. So the poem was me telling myself that I was digging myself into a hole, basically, that I was making things worse for myself.
