Cornered


Amid the darkness of all these wide nights,
rudeness of these inching walls,
stony gaze of the overlooking ceiling,
and the stillness of silent time,
chokes the breath of life.


His voice reverberates against the walls,
I speak to him in my heart,
Plead and rant in vain,


I close my eyes and surrender,
Life -- you are my only grief.
