Deep dark black hole of nothingness
Taking, never giving.
Sucking up everything in its path.
Takes hopes and dreams from men and women
And replaces them with the fact that you’re just not good enough.
Closer than most,
But not close enough.
On the team
But never getting any playing time.
Knows all the secrets,
But steals any that you may have had together.
Stills the tongue silences the heart, and blinds the eyes.
Punishment that seems a lifetime.
Escape attempts only dig you deeper.
Few get out,
Only because empty time dissolved the bars,
Or they both thought they were frozen in the others eye
But never truly were.
Timing: too soon, too late
Is my common crime
But your simple existence can get you life without parole
A one person judge and jury seals your fate
And soon to be banished to
The Friend Zone
