No escape





I thought I had escaped at last the clinging ties that hold me fast. I though with age things would relent and all the harsh things you’d said were just not meant.So many years I have carried the fears that have weighed me down and reduced me to tears.

How long is this path I have to walk while all my short falls on your, black board, you chalk. I just think I see the light and as towards it, my way I fight. You watch me nearly reach my goal then you scoop me up and drop me in your goldfish bowl.

How long can this torment last? When will you loose these chains that have me in their grasp.Why must each day be another trial that sees me fail , stupid, lazy , ignorant and vile.Why must it always be your way, why must I adhere to everything you say. You march on your eyes and ears tight shut and I am dragged in your wake all bruised and cut.

I am tired and and weak of heart lost for words, by your demons I am  slowly torn apart. After all these years I cannot melt your icy heart but I guess I new that from the start. How can I fight these devils, they are yours not mine but still they are killing me as around my heart they entwine.

    to simply accept the fact your a miracle, living, a creature who’s odds of being here are slim and none, to accept what is and grab what life is left before so many more come and go in what to this earth is like a blink of an eye. (*_*) I love the poetic literature you twist into words that spiral the soul into a thought train.

      Thank you Art, sometimes the words just come spiraling out sometimes with a definite thought in mind sometimes not but always the seed of a thought. X X X

      It is a hard one to explain, this is my life there in those words, but I know it for what it is and for whatever reason I have chosen to stay. My word is my bond my life is no harder than the next person’s.
