Habeas corpuses


Haunted by fears of abandonment he lived a life of counter measures
always aloof, his deceptions were a well rehearsed performance;
ultimately judged as inconsiderate and unforgivable;
And labeled as an insignificant happenstance that must be made to pay.
   He measured his meters ever so carefully thinking he knew time so well;
   Waiting for things to be right but never imagining it would never come back;
   But in the end it wasn't time it was life and like a parentless child life;
   Delivered to him but a centrifuge of what was once a living dream.
the man only wanted to be loved for who he was and not what he pretended to be;
But could anyone possibly know, being the shape shifter he supposed he was.
But he had a heart and he tried to be kind and he wasn’t superman so how did he;
End up labeled a breaker of promises considerate only of that which he desired.
   So the man accepts the blame solely as his own for;
   He should have known better but he finds these conclusions hard to bare; 
   And he considers it to perhaps have been mistaken identity of what;
   He once believed an undying love was nothing more than a hopeless delusion

    A strong write, Anthony, about "Haveas corpuses". Perhaps imprisonment as a detainee of love. Part of growth is making mistakes...I think you are haunted by your own? Hope all goes well for you and yours...wishing you the best!! Mikki

    Very deep write and makes the reader feel your confusion. You have a "new" line 6 which should be "knew" hope that helps. Chin up and keep the verses coming. Light & Love
