The Lonely Dancer

Headway to gain in search of the rain,
This drought has killed all except for the pain. 
Invincible thoughts my body's a drain,
Continuing forward while feeling insane. 

Resentment and struggle a sight of remorse. 
Beatings and thrashings upon a dead horse. 
From yelling and screaming my throat becomes coarse. 
The words have all vanished there's nothing to force.  

My head hung so low it drags at my feet,
A vision of agony alone in the street. 
Mercy for others burned by the heat, 
Blinded by lust and tempted to cheat. 

Life as a slave my body's a drum,
Been running so long my feet have turned numb. 
Contained by a culture of faith leaves me none. 
No sun in the sky oblique as they come. 

Frantically searching the dark for an answer,
Constantly waiting, but time is a cancer. 
No longer a lover or a secret romancer,
Seclusion labels my soul - The lonely dancer. 

#forever alone
