escape

WHIP

You are my story
and I escape within these pages
of your unmapped strength
through pauses
and the violence
that collects each letter;
another lash I want
and need
but don’t deserve.

CAUGHT

 

You captured me
with nothing
but your very
existence
and I
didn’t even notice
I was escaping
mine.

NIGHT LIFE

Somewhere
beyond the outskirts
of my coloured dreams,
the Sentry
– distant –
marking time
watches
as my silent soul
escapes,
eloping
while I sleep
– awakened –
with my fictional
and very real
desires.
