To Those Who Say "Life Is Short," Obviously Are Not Trapped

June 27, 2020

Trapped by walls without end


Within cages with no doors


Secured by locks with no keys


A soul, devastated and crushed


Caught in an eternal void


Escape not possible


Confidence, did I ever have it?


Courage, was it an illusion?


Hope, a false prophet


Belief, nothing but a hidden lie


Seduced by each other


Was desire for me ever real?


Passion, vaguely remembered


Time freed up, gone to another


With the wild, we were one


Sexual exploration once limitless, nearly forgotten


Me, by you, completely forgotten?


My heart, abandoned -- again


Life, a joyless morass


Life, a lonely hell


Death, inevitable


Death, not soon enough
