the web

this is a “cascade poem” which is something new for me – learned to do it from a post on the Fight to Write site –> link.

the web

finding out everything you ever knew
everything you’d been told
it was all lies.
your mind could not take it

sitting behind the oak desk
I feel a stranger though your brother
reading through your journal
finding out everything you ever knew

you were confined
they kept you within their bounds, controlled
you couldn’t break free because of
everything you’d been told

so-called friends would reassure you
the world was still upright
you needn’t consider
it was all lies

finally, all their true intentions
when the web was revealed
you saw the world for what it was and
your mind could not take it
