like a bug in a spider web,

Trapped in networks of connections

networks of good intentions,

the stickiness of the web leaves a residue

of helplessness and pointless struggle.

Lost in a maze, the walls

rising like a prison, casting shadows.

Each turn another dead end – 

or a circle, tracing a careful path

right back to where I first began.

Too full of feelings, packed tight,


sadness -anger – joy –anger – pain – fear -sadness – anger – joy

packed too tight for air, too heavy to move

trapped in the intricacy of my own making.
