Theme: Introspection


I live in a corner
within my life
It has a tunnel
to let me in and out
I am sucked in
sometimes for days...

They search me
out in streets and highways
No one reads my words
for clues that corner me
within high walls.

I know if I try to climb out
words will grab me
and throw me down
If I fall flat on face -
sprawled on this white space
I will become a concentric dot

It will begin to ooze ink
on all sides
and swallow this page
in big black doubt
So I better remain lost
in this corner -
when ripe
the time itself will bring me out.
