Stuck

Like being frozen in carbonite
Like being surrounded by dynamite
Like being crippled with stagefright
Like being haunted at night

Like being swallowed by a whale
Like being lost on the trail
Like being consumed with chasing tail
Like being forced to wear a veil

Like being shadowed by threats
Like being obsessed with placing bets
Like being a hack with weak sets
Like being a master at acquiring debts

Like being a prisoner with no rights
Like being at an airport with no flights
Like being a computer with no bytes
Like being overwhelmed by the slights

Like being a rage you can’t contain
Like being a standard you can’t maintain
Like being a sadness you can’t explain
Like being a compulsion that’s so profane

Like being a bad policy you have to defend
Like being a broken relationship you can’t mend
Like being a terrible message you can’t send
Like being a constitution you can’t amend
