Mouse Or Men

In a labyrinth, the heart reveals its beauty, its center a mystery. The belly of the beast must be full of devastation. It still hungers for more, tasting its last prey. Soon it will stop and there will be silence. Shivering in the corner, like a mouse captured by the light. Caught in its betrayal, like a thief before the jury. Exposing scars, beating rhythm in the heart.

Than you Lise, :) I'm glad you liked it. Some of my poems are inward metaphors, of external problems.Sometime I feel like I'm throwing thought around, I guess that's poetry. lol
