Zero Four
Author: 15


A golden liquid passage,
Leading to a gray existence.
A home,
A prison,
One in the same.
So often to I roam free,
Only to be led back,
Convicted again,
Confiding in it.

A transparent dungeon,
Shackles of torment.
The stupor house,
Is my sanctuary.

Alas! I reach out,
Grasping my weapon of choice.
Dualing no one.
I retract.
Giving in again.

Again I lash out!
Weapon still in hand,
My weapon of choice,
But I have no choice,
I slay myself again,
On tumble at a time.

So stones of comfort,
Crumble at the majesty,
Of an eighty story power,
A golden idol tower,
A burial tomb for one.
The king of delusional gluttony,
Now laid to rest.
