Trapped in this life
Like a fly in a web
Though not trussed up tight
In silken thread
Held by invisible chains
Of inertia and caring
Longing for a tangible love
Not this shell, they are wearing
She knows there is affection
But dreams of more
She reads of soul mates
She wants that encore
She searches her memory
Was love ever as bright
As flashes, she dreams every night
She’s stuck in dependency
Trapped in her life
Like a fly in a web
Wanting so much more
Unsure how to navigate to paradise
