A Prisoner's Lament
There comes a day, to all of us,
when we know that we will leave.
And stay in the same place, yes, indeed;
but the heart's journey knows very little need.
I swim in my pain, no lust could surrender,
until I thrust out my shame;
and in that moment, I briefly remember,
some days when I still had my name.
It will take more than one call I say, perhaps
or perhaps it was what I didn't say,
that made the scarlet and the traps
much easier to find on the way
Nonetheless, I am stranded, and no one can swim
as far out as I have been,
I have seen the wicked ways in them,
those funny girls, and those men.
But still I touch my toes to the sand,
and feel its inviting grains,
and pretend that happiness is a word that I know,
inside my jailbars and pains.
"Suicides have already betrayed the body.
Still born, they don't always die,
bu dazzled, they can't forget a drug so sweet
that even children would look on and smile."
