Tainted

Can’t seem to shake
This dreaded motion
Inside me

Trapped in mud
My feet won’t travel
Nowhere is safe
No one is kind

Tainted by tokens
Of what should
Take my fancy
What should
Give me wings

But all I learned
Was fear, to be afraid

Now my cage
Is the mind I own
Away from others
Failing to connect

From the sidelines
I seethe
Shamed and broken
Frozen

And hammered by should
all I’m amassing
Are regrets
