Circle

there are two of us
talking in circles
and one of us who
wants to leave

in a world created
for only us
an empty cage
that had no key

don't you know
we're working
with flesh and blood
carving out in jealousy

crawling into each other
it's smothering every
little part of me

what kind of love is this
that keeps me
hanging on despite everything
its doing to me
what is this love
that keeps me coming
back for more
when it will only
end in misery

I know too many people unhappy
in a life from which
they'd love to flee
watching others get
everything offered
they're wanton for discovery

oh my brother my sister my mother
your losing your identity
can't you see that it's you
in the window
shining with intensity

what kind of love is this
that keeps me hanging on
despite everything it's doing to me
what is this love that keeps
me coming back for more
when it will only end
in misery
