Emotions fuel my fires
as they drive my desires.
Bonds forged by flesh
forgetting my true self afresh.
Friend to fiend, beloved to foe
changing bodies yet another embryo.
Ancestral bonds and familial ties
blinds the wisdom of even the wise.
Tying my own noose
cooking my own goose.
Twilight cloaks eyes
internal hi-jackers in disguise.
Putting fingers in a live socket
clinging on to lusts locket.
Bleeding wounds and feeding a shark
waking up sleeping dogs who seldom bark
So i ask, is it them or is it me or perhaps we, all three
is it faults of myself in others that i see
Burning bridges fired by quarrels
unhinged heart leans on immorals.
Stabbings with our tongue
leaving the glories of one another unsung.
In the company of others whilst all alone
where are my people? Am i a clone ?
Soul searching for solace whose heart beats of stone
foraging for friendship, elusively unknown.
As the fire keeps blazing, discontent impels the flame
perpetually it seems, fanned by blame.
Dying to feel as emotions are torn
will i ever to myself be reborn ?
i don’t know for sure, i don’t know for certain
one day will i find happiness behind that curtain ?
