I am a point, a tangible link between two others.

Connected with thin, taut, and fickle strings.

A brother… A lover… and I am another.

Content upon grim thoughts, worth no more than a nickel.

*****

My life hangs in the balance, but who should care?

When a triangle’s lost ropes, only lead to a segment of hope.

Mentally molested, is it not enough that life’s not fair?

You pull and twist my mind, then I’m expected to cope.

***

I am a point, alone and lost.

No more strings, except the things that you secretly converse.

I am a point; beaten, bruised, confused, crucified, and crossed.

Excluded, polluted, diluted, and left with a transferable curse.

*****

My life hangs in the balance, but they don’t care.

When a triangle’s lost ropes only lead to a segment of hope.
