Self Imposed Limbo

Timid upon standing Flailing at equilibrium with outstretched fingertips Desperate to grasp that which is unattainable for now and conceivably forever Anguish consumes the frontal cortex as the lower brain pulls the strings emphatically Enlightenment is thwarted by an insatiable thirst for pleasure and unapologetic indulgence Sedated and aloof Injected with a serum that nullifies cerebral interjection The mind becomes a host for any poisonous intrusion Undefended and vulnerable Trembling in a remote corner before ultimately succumbing to a sobering silence
