Personal (Hope)

I have been marooned

to this isolated island

by my own self-imposed

(ship)wrecked image.

I have gone overboard

with this seclusion,

overloaded illusion.

Pirates pilfered my

confidence, stowaway

everything I lived for.

They will see how

I have deserted myself

to maintain the mirage.

But when I am rescued,

I will feel like myself again-

changed somehow but

still who I was meant to be.
