I Am Where I Am

That one dream
to be set free of
all that feels suffocating
about this life,
to escape the calendar
and the minutiae of
papered responsibilities,
is an artful Trojan horse
of sorts,
for I am where I am
and nowhere else,
I only ever escape to me.

Escape

The screen was black and white though
eventually it faded to grey,
a sea of obsequious sorrow,
that vision of the ministry of love.
And, in my child’s mind,
I wanted to break out.
I deviated,
rebelled,
seeking to escape the doldrums
of melancholic existence and
predictable furrows.
Such frowns would imprison me,
but for the adventure of divergent colour,
thrumming wildly in my heart.
