Into

I am stranded on this island I once called trust.
The cold breath of loneliness sends shivers down my spine.
The floor corrodes from under my feet.
It burns like acid and I am futile bitterness.
Nothing changes. It never has.
I hurt from the inside now.

You peer through these windows into my soul
and I fall to the earth like a distant star.
Gaze into my eyes. They are all I have left.
These rigid formats run me down into nothingness.
I am wide open. Take it while you can.
The wheels of our mechanical society turn me
around and follow me home.
There is no escape. Mein Gott ist niemand.
Take me away and let my burrow into your arms tonight.
It’s all I have to bring me back to you.
