No Plea Except Guilty | Short Poem No. 6

I have no plea, so what can I say?

I’ve gotten myself in trouble again.

Because, like a long reverb, you stay inside my head

as every word you say slowly, slowly drifts away.

And now I’m in trouble again

because you’re a song that’s on repeat

as I’m drifting down the street.

But love won’t hear my plea to set me free.

No plea

So now I’m sucked in and it’s no contest.

My mind and soul have no rest

because of this emotional distress.

I’m in trouble as I’m captive to you.
