What’s Beneath Me – Mark Tulin

There is comfort above

while a nightmare below,

and if I’m not careful, 

my blind vulnerability 

will lead me astray

My deceitful heart

will make wrong choices,

hear deceptive voices

and loveless lies

My body immobile

with bound ankles,

stripped of morals, 

and freedom denied

Dropped like an anchor,

through a cosmic hole,

a convoluted maze,

a swirling vortex of eternity.
