Quicksand: A Poem of Denial

quicksandWhy must I deny myself from thy good grace
I do what I hate and I hide my face

You have provided a way to return
yet I turn away, my lessons not learned

Denial is easy to an audience of one
I’m in a web not easily undone

I break free, feel sun on my skin
Only to fail, and fall right back in

Pull me from this quicksand before I drown
the grip is heavy, it’s pulling me down
