Time-out

a man on a ledge
seeing the world
thru blinded eyes
experiencing life
within a needful
inward time-out

a man yet frozen
inside a looking
glass beyond his
mind’s secreted
faux inescapable
perpetual dream

a man struggling
yearning freedom
midst an winless
war against dark
hidden desires of
his deceitful heart

a man dangling
on a unraveling
thread of a past
unforgiving curse
battling against
a haunting will
