The Rope

Written by: Adam Piper

one day
we will wake up
and things
will  never
be the same

nothing changes
and everything
stays the same
when we are 
wrapped up
and twisted 
inside
life's game

we fuss
and we fight
and want things
to be right
but when
it all 
comes down

we are still
lost
and nothing is 
found

we think we can cope
at the end of our
ropes
but the length
is never
enough

and life remains
tough
but we keep on
because there
is nothing left
to hold onto
