Escape

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 10; the tenth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.


Chained now,
I cannot move,
Invisible tight bonds.
Chained now, I cannot breathe again;
Past calls.
Die soon, no reincarnation;
Too many questions now,
Find no answers.
Failure,
Old memories,
Still suffocate my mind;
Pain reveals, solace where to find?
Future?
Horizon seems clouded, so dark,
Journey, do I embark?
No hope I see,
Vaguely.
Moments stay still,
Replay, caught in a trap;
No direction, enigma stays;
I yearn
To break free of expectations;
Yet they never let go,
Cannot shrug off;
Just pain,
Needless troubles,
I endure, I feel nothing;
Relentless, I push forward more,
Now numb.
Is that the border? Ah, sweet freedom!
Desires dance with me,
Let me cross quick;
Escape.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
