The Escapee Categories: escapee, creation, love, poetry, Form: Sonnet
As time goes by, the anguish shall abate.
To double back my trail, to hide, to wait
for an unwelcome love to go away.
Long distances can quench the wanderlust,
but lust of wonder. Wonder is a must,
but lust is never worth its outlay.
Potato Mountain Categories: escapee, mountains, Form: Free verse
I will arrive
an habitual escapee
from the rabbit warrens
of central planners
By ferreting north
in search of
breaks in the maze
rifts in the grid
I will follow
a stream beside
the climbing track
and yet higher
To a saddle below
the great ridge
To a fine summit

Most times strangers
react the way you present
yourself to them

wondering where you're coming from
but once they realize
you are absolutely harmless

And explore the world safely

Casting Foreshadowing Categories: escapee, word play, Form: Sonnet
Fish in tank just keep on with their messin'
At the ol' dank sweet delicatessen
Adept at avoiding detection
Except one thing hoarding dereliction

Lips parched n' rot from lack confession's
Covert skills glancing for the reflection

Now blind just for...Read More

Butterfly Beautiful Categories: escapee, lost love, Form: Free verse
Pure sweet butterfly beautiful,
An escapee from my larva of dreams
You flutter-fly so elegantly,
So elusively you dart and dodge,
Innocently gliding beyond my hold.
As you fly away again and
Spare one last glance
With soft ice-cream eyes
And ever-evasive smile –
Ineluctable and true.

Of recent suffering, you've had your fill;
This is the last of...Read More

Open at its door.

Made a daring escape.

And shimmied up the drape.

The little rascal gone.

Blackout! Categories: escapee, deathparents, parents, Form: I do not know?
I sat in my room
When all of a sudden
Something tuned on the screen
A prison escapee not far from here
Was said to have been spotted somewhere near.
I boarded the windows
Locked all the doors
Closed all the curtains
And got to the floor
