Under Duress

Is it you today?
Is it true that you were once an angry little man?
And that beauty changed your plan
Turned to rust then to dust

Did you run away?
Did you stray from here because the colors ran and changed?
And the whole town knew your name
Felt your shame unwanted fame

Looking past the paper strips
Floating down the narrow lips
Flying high, the sighing sky, you’re protecting my thoughts
From summer’s hiss

Can you get away?
Can you take a few days to assess what this has done?
Open doors and cinnamon
Rabbit run you’re overdone

So you took the proper steps
Made a mark upon your chest
Read the note, you somehow hoped that emotions broke out
Under duress Now the sun has set

As you walk the twilight hides the truth, you turn to look
But it’s covered up the hook
All alone no direction known
