Poetry Prompt #145 (and I am late as usual)


For this week’s prompt, write an escape poem. The poem could about someone or something that is thinking of escape, has escaped, or has lost someone or something that has escaped. And remember: Escape can be a physical thing but also emotional, psychological, etc.

My VERY late attempt at the escape poetry prompt. 

Eggshells crack as I walk through the house
Tension forces a web around me.
Cutting through all of the bullshit
With a knife is near impossible
Escape reality
Escape today
Return tomorrow anew. 

Converse in time
Lay it on the table
Toss out the meaningless
Trash what remains
Escape
Breathe           
Go forward.
