I'd complain my way through the tunnels of eternity.


Why do we always go crawling back
To that Medusa glare? That serpent hair?

Why do we slip, tumble down every hill
That we so boldly intend to scale?

A piece about returning to something that hurts you, that you falsely believe you can champion.

Thank you very much. Your thoughts on the poem are very appropriate, and I had not thought of that situation applying to this piece, but it certainly does.

This makes me think about abused women, going back to their men again and again, thinking that they'll eventually change their abusers, or even worse, that it's somehow their fault.

These are four powerful lines.
