Tired of living in circles

He’s turned his home inside and out,

Pulled apart all the dressers

Upturned every mattress

-

No trace of a persona

Of a brave light to strive for

Only flowery hedges

At the end of each path

-

New fears stalk the alleys

Of his once crowded mind

Now each block is derelict

The home of whispers and schemes

-

Around and around

He paces undone

Through the treacherous maze

He has forged from himself
