I don't care what anyone says - some roots are permanent, despite how much we may try to pull away from them toward other things that may seem beneficial.

The House Plant

Twisting like barbwire, I’ve scratched a path that barely reaches the irregular shapes reflected on the paneled wall.
Turning like the vine of a fading house plant, forgotten in a dark and dusty room.

Unsympathetic to the cause, I can barely spare enough incentive to rise instinctively toward the light which fades and reappears throughout the hours.

How can I venture to find the source for my roots are entombed in this pot, this coffin?
I am only permitted to stretch as far as my tendrils can climb, before they dry up and fall like twigs.

Despondently Anchored!
