No Place to Go

No Place to Go

A Poem by Ariel Olivia

Inspired by a recent experience of a user of people.

There's always someone out there
to tear your world down
to kill your hope in humanity
There's always someone addicted
to using people like a drug
They rip through towns
like a shadow in the night
and before you know it
you've been used
your soul feels empty
you're ashamed that you allowed it
you're ashamed of yourself
when there's nothing more you could've done
life becomes more lonely, there's no rhythm
once you've been visited by someone of this nature
you're no longer sure about life
you're no longer sure of yourself
life itself becomes surreal
like a black and white movie
with a long lost ending...
the reel gets jammed...
the lights come on
and you have no place to go.
