The Net

The remorseless tide, 

Held back, 

By tendrils of hope, 

Sinuous, wispy, 

Tiny threads, 

Naked, 

To the eye, 

A net, 

Weaved from aspirations, 

Fabricated in dreams, 

Sewn, 

By the light, 

The smallest remnant, 

Of humanity. 

Stretched, 

Pulled, 

Out of proportion. 

Not designed, 

For this. 

Tearing, 

Avaricious creatures, 

Vindictive beasts, 

Cruellest life form, 

Inexorable stalking, 

Pushing, 

Thrusting, 

Implacable host, 

Urged on, 

By their hideous masters, 

Unstoppable, 

Seeking, 

You.
