HOOKED

Line of fishing hooks on a white surface
daniel jaeger

Hooked


Feeling
I’ve been here before
bewildered, befuddled, so
captivated, tempted by blue sky
seduced, suckered, falling
hook, line and sinker
unable to swim away
barb in cheek
tangled in net
thrashing
flailing
left gasping for air
in this thin, foreign atmosphere
caught

    1. Thanks, Hannah! :-) LOL Just realized how appropriate this poem is for where I am at present, so... guess it makes sense that I've captured the feeling! :-]
