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

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
