emotional hostage
a Gulliver held
 by the Lilliputian lines and phrases
of another's desperation;
scrambled affection;
urgent pleas of validation;
token compliments.
cast adrift in the sea
of self pity and abasement
in which one is the only life preserver.
yet terrified of causing the tsunami of turmoil
that could cause another soul to drown
by shades of what if and what where
of crystals gone dark
of lives unlived
of time past by
unrelenting limbo
of cries of freedom
of voices unheard
of fear to act or not.
