captive

here i stand,

in front of you, for your judgment

of these shadows that cling to me

wrapped in their embrace,

an empty void in me being filled

with warmth

i know i’m the ugliest thing

you’ve ever seen –

a person who has the freedom

to make the right choice

but is instead

a willing captive.
