Trapped

mistakes I’ve made
trap me in this self-effacing vice
splicing
the life I’ve managed to convolute
into splinters
between how I should be and who I really am
the span
of an existence
too short to ponder
decisions failed
or squandered
yet the mind
continues to tick like a time bomb in my skull
beating me up
time and again
replaying tapes
cycling patterns
like angry flies biting my ankles
and drinking me dry from the seams
