fortress of man

attempting to penetrate the fortress of man

against accusations of control

seeking a window or door or even a crevasse

finding only cold stubborn cement

feeling smaller and smaller

denying futility


pondering the possibility of illusion

and delusion

was there ever light

or did wanting create deception

he must see me

as his dagger pierces my psyche


is this assault enjoyable

or unavoidable

is the power of his stance impenetrable

i retreat

licking wounds

and access

why i allow the war to continue

when truly i do not care to fight


is the brass ring of union

only attainable

through battle
