withdrawn back into my own little world
all the security, all the reassurance one needs
out away from the inexorable cold,
warmth of mine own arms, i keep.
no more love to met out, no one to lend any
exhausted and retiring, an empty soul
forsaken, forgiven, forgotten, sins a-many
but why in me is contained, a yawning vacant hole?
Lost faith in all, no one to trust
every implicit word, many misleading,
all you proffer are trivial links, of lust,
unacquainted of a heart beat ceasing.
Why did you draw me out into the world?
Only to leave drowning in the storm?
assure of sun and spring, you lured,
I saw you quite, in your seraphim form.
mendacity chokes and blinds me yet
is there anywhere else to retire?
Lies, Deceit, folly, no regrets,
Buried deep, within a smothering mire.
