A battle for who knows what.
Siege tower mammoths
blockading this life
going nowhere fast.
A jewel of fire clutched in fist
defiantly withholding from sight
my love, my hope, my trust
afterglow snuffed in a whisp.
Where did these walls come from?
How much time has passed?
Is that the horizon beyond the wall
or shadows on the wall? I am numb.
The horizon catches my eager gaze
with haphazard mirages
and shadow things fleeting
or perhaps respite from this dreary haze.
Keep the gate locked up!
Anyways I misplaced the key.
Am I being kept in here
blissfully devoid of fear?
Once more mute sirens drone
familiar stagnant cozy embrace.
Scowl hung low on the mirror face
I wave goodbye to the unknown.

...and miles to go before I sleep.
