Unattended

Prison-for-the-Mind-copy

This unattended moment: The past awakens

Claws rending; emotions spill into the light

Heart closes: Defenseless in what has been taken

Sever the head of this banal beast; end this fight

 

This unattended moment: Hopeless and caught

Pushed; falling and helpless in a bottomless past

Reliving battles: Never wanted, but they were fought

Opening the old wounds; has the future die been cast?

 

This unattended moment: Trust may be a snare

Without mercy or reprieve; held within this cell

Too tired to fight: Maybe one day, if given care

A broken heart may open; for now only time will tell
