We are our monsters (For Kylie)


within the labyrinth
of our minds
Ariadne's thread
ties itself in knots
with no way out

our Theseus forever
trapped in darkness
while lurking around
every corner
the Minotaur waits

in every reflection
our Medusa hides
and our petrified
Perseus cowers in fear
knowing no escape
