Venus Flytrap

"
The Venus flytrap
Cemented in place in North Carolina
And I can relate
The living stencil of myself I've managed to trace
In a sense, an extraterrestrial 
Nightmares or dreaming lucid
As If I had teleported
Venus eventually obtaining what it desires
Yet remains planted
I'm certain it didn't come easy
The oxymoron
Sprinting
Ferociously swimming to achieve nowhere
A mission I'd deem seemingly relentless
Intended to premiere the vision and light at the end of the tunnel
Apparently a hologram
Apparently only an oasis,
Tasteless measure in defeat
I'm tired now
It's exhausting,
Continuing this drift atop this wave
Beautiful formation to jump ship,
Being Flytrap native is wetlands.
Absolutely stagnant,
I stood
Staring
Blankly thinking
Not yet adapted
Nor fathoming,
Awaiting
Fraught
Desperately searching for answers
Stranded
Daunting
Unsettling
I realized image is everything
Conflicted
Realizing repetition isn't prediction
Chasing
Realizing I'd never catch the 22
I tried,
I'm tired,
Uniquely exhausted,
Managing a balance of smiles and yes,
Tip toeing a tightrope line where light and dark meet
The Venus Flytrap tolerates fire
Arose in burnt and concrete
To emerge
The Venus flytrap remains,
Remains persistent
Blueprint
Fuming
It'd take time just as sure your hair will grow.

It's a little unorthodox, thank you so much!
