Poem: In and Out

I thought we could 
Trap ourselves in a cage, 
And work ourselves into a rage, 
Over candlelight meals and love. 

But then you want out 
You want to escape from the claws 
That used to dig into your back 
Over pleasure, 
That felt just like yesterday. 

And then you want in, 
Only when you feel lonely - 
Left on the dark streets at night; 
So you want in 
To my abode, my warmth, my world. 

I knew it should 
Never have turned out this way- 
But I have to lock you in forever, 
Or cast you aside and see you never...
