Trapped Again

Trapped

——

So close

Endless corners in

a twisted labyrinth

Each one promising relief

respite from this grimy race..

like sunlight being

eaten by the ravenous shadows

being consumed inch

by precious inch…

But never really leaving

always hanging tantalizingly near

like a  carrot on a stick…

just a temptation to keep

the runners on the track

An incentive

to remain trudging along

Crawling forward

in hopes that next time…

would be

different.
