The Nowhere Abyss


Stuck here,

in a limbo of fate's making,

I merely dangle along,

making no mark,

leaving only a legacy of conflicted afflictions.

Mared reflections,

glare back

from a mirror of no compassion,

blinding my view

of where I am.

Stark reality,

looms and taunts-

a mocking of unfullfilled hopes,

echoing in a silent laughter

that deafens my ears.

No hope,

when hope is abducted

by thieves in my nights.

Bound and gagged,

I am drug away.

Held for a ransom

no one can easy afford-

I remain confined, captured,

in this,

the nowhere abyss.
