A Brick Wall

Hidden in my home, not seeing anyone
Lying alone, lost from all that is life
The curse takes what it wants until its done
All my life enshrouded in pain and strife

If I hide away from passion and joy
Forgiveness is all I ask from the boy
Perhaps quietly passing beyond all
This life an insurmountable brick wall

This is a Heroic Rispetto poem which is an Italian poetry form.  It consists of two rhyme quatrains and written in iambic pentameter with the rhyme scheme of abab ccdd.  A rispetto is the same except it is written in iambic tetrameter.
