Aspirations are locked away
To be found another day
Afflictions made to conceal
Rust and mold blocks appeal

Eternal race against time
Filters out rhetorical rhyme
The immersive darkness
Sets cognitive dissonance

Set apart delusional gain
You missed the last train (again)
So now its over
Over and over (again)

Despite beautiful coats of lacquer, Pandora's box was very, very empty...

Quarantine the great divide
Tomorrow morning will decide

I never begged...
