captivity | kapˈtɪvɪti |
the condition of being imprisoned or confined.

Stripped down and afraid we face each other. We snarl and claw and we cling with fierce desperation to little words devoid of meaning. We use the exposed flesh of strangers to hurt each other and then we stand back to cry over what we've become. We killed the goddess and we killed the lover, we sacrificed innocence to stand here in this naked moment - animal to animal. We sneer and bare our teeth at one another in the cage we constructed out of our shared illusions and pride. We reach for each other and find words that turn into more cages to hold us later.
