THE ARGUMENT, by Artemis J Jones.

Time, Time, Time, Again
Rehash your stupid crap
My crap, your shit, as our lies beheld
The grandeur for my tears

Arms swing extended, with fists of rage
And there are sirens to be heard
My life, your time, all held with fear, stress to doors emerge
Released, but for moment now, a willow in a cage

Fallow rage befalls me now
Cast out my faith and love
Return to me on sun filled day
Supremacies from above

The neutral powers enter fast
And warns of blows to stop
When last you swing and miss your mark
As threats for sure will drop

Will of restraint, now holds you fast
And down you go with me
I ask, you beg, I cry, you spit, forever waters mark
Face to floor, I turn towards door, forsaken the rains create

A play behind, a sorrow, now
More empathy and wallow
Last time was me, they led away
In shame and shackles callow

To scream outside for none to hear
A worthless soul proclaims
The triumph of a rotting soul
To be washed out in the rain

I rise as before, but different now
My bag is at the door
Check ticket, exit, walk through rain, soon sun appears to bless
My rotted soul now fertile for
The seeds to life's behest
