Life’s Lockdown

There’s a quiet

Restlessness

in me

An audible

sssshhhhhhh!

A restless soul

pacing

trapped in

my Human

frame

Human house…

Human name…

or something else….

You’ll say to me

You say to me

I’m uncomfortably present

awkwardly I’m here

Cleverly you’ve trapped me

by playing on my fear

I don’t want to say yes

but something in me is sparked

and if I don’t say yes

I won’t have a heart

you’ll say to me

You’ll say to me

I don’t really love you

that I’m not really into it

and my love is not true

And yet that twist inside me

coils like a snake

ready to make me feel bad

making me ready to hate

myself
