In the article, the different representations of captivity as our space deprivation are analyzed. The folklore motives and images, and even mythic worldview in  Taras Melnychuk’s poetry are treated as  tools for  the  conceptualization of  fragmentariness, perversity, and disharmony of  the  world. The  folklore language overpasses the deficiency of words, fills in verbal lacunas which have been formed as breaks in the tissue of being, induced by violation. The concept of captivity in Melnychuk’s poetry is described in mythic terms of the death world; therefore, the opposition of mobility / immobility is conceptualized as significant. In his poetry, Taras Melnychuk has established the well-defined hierarchical correspondence that allows correlating between different levels of my space. Therefore, the adequacy of the outer space and body as  the  inner space which is  placed into it  depends on  the  corporeal authenticity which can be conceptualized as the very first level of space ordering.
