Unrequited

Elusive, the restless shadow
Your chatty conscience is
A subterfuge maniac witness
Lying dormant and yet present
Alive wired vibrant
Holding on for dear life to
That feeling

The panic
Risen like a tsunami
Turbulent
and tumultuous
Rough skin on silhouette
Passionate

Yearn and lurch forward
Sink deeper toward the center
Such guilty, desperate banter
Keeps your heart aflutter
Meaningless wonder, loveless
Twisted obsessions oblivious
To hindrance and falter

What is freedom I wonder?
Not at all how we pictured it
(When were younger) but
Stonewalled are we, put asunder
