Fortress Of Solitude - Poem by Robert L. Bixler III

There is dissention in my ranks
Someone’s robbed my emotional banks
Left me all for broke
Such a great joke.

Whenever I’m free
My demons always find me,
Lonely bullets of kryptonite.
Whenever she comes into sight….

I suffer from…

Habitual digression of social participation
Waves of suicidal depression, my true confessions.
Like Superman I’ll fly away
Hide in my fortress today.

Here in my fortress of solitude
My reclusive views find rectitude.
Seems I’ve fallen symptom
To a lifelong state of lonesome.

Eroticism could never exist,
I’m the superman girls resist.
Her kryptonic lust attack
Throws me, full-force, back.

Every time that she is around
My fetus-coiled self is bound
To run and hide, transform Clark,
Superman’s flown to his ark.

It’s just a case of…

Habitual digression of social participation,
Waves of suicidal depressions, my true confessions.
Like Superman I’ll fly away,
Hide in my fortress today.

Here in my fortress of solitude
My reclusive views find rectitude.
Seems I’ve fallen symptom
To a life long state of lonesome.

Within myself I’m so secure
Anti-intimacy shields to reassure
That I’m the only one near;
Isolation in my own fear.

Is this? ?
Could it be? ?
It’s just another case of…

Habitual digression of social participation,
Waves of suicidal depressions, my true confessions.
Like Superman I’ll fly away,
Hide in my fortress today.

Here in my fortress of solitude
My reclusive views find rectitude.
Seems I’ve fallen symptom
To a life long state of lonesome.
