Standard Inflections

Once upon a dim-lit evening, as I contemplated leaving

Something kept me standing longer, longer than I planned to stay

So from room to room migrating, pacing back and forth berating

How my memory forsaking me this reason for delay

Still it kept me standing longer, force compelling me to stay

 

Why I lingered in this strange space, was there something I could not face,

Thoughts of how I came to be here, and whose home is this I pray?

With my recall now abating, dreams of leaving now deflating

As I cast around debating where to exit right away

In this place of no departure, desperation I convey

 

I seemed to be entangled in this limbo sharply angled

Each room mocking and confusing me, a hapless castaway

With the space now conjugating shapes were endlessly rotating

In my mind’s eye cogitating the geometrics on display

Until sadness slowly settled, I conceded my doomsday

 

And here I remain in torment left to muse on wretched descent

While I while away the hours deliberating day by day

Mad projections illuminating, the despondency of waiting

Futility perpetuating mind’s inexorable decay

Admit that we are held here, evermore condemned to stay
