Never make someone a priority if they will make you an option.


Here I stand

Held back by glass doors

Unheard by the glorious laughter of a tearful childhood

No longer can I feel the warm streams of the sunny days

 

For here I stand

Hidden from my shadow

Conspicuous by my absence

Concealed by my current makeup - who I have become

 

I am a prisoner of time

Entrapped by the past

Unseen by the present

And locked away from the future
