Trapped

Trapped

Wanting a little sunlight but given a dark haze;
Hoping for attention, instead getting a blank daze;
Desiring wholeness but receiving a tiny part;
Wishing for the finish line but failing to start;
Looking for an escape and arriving at a dead end;
Craving flexibility yet unfit to bend;
Fishing for consideration but swallowing disrespect;
Thirsting for communication with someone who doesn't want to connect;
Starving for discretion but withstanding full disclosure;
Dying for some control while losing my composure.
