No Escape – Prose for Thought

No Escape

there’s no escape

not now, not ever

what I have done will last forever

I can’t turn around

I can’t go back

suffocated; feeling trapped

smile, be happy, laugh, have fun

but sometimes I sink under

I think ‘what have I done?’

hot sweaty hands; palpitating heart

alarm clock in my chest

we will never be apart

it’s getting easier

the feeling does subside

yet snatches of thoughts

to want to run and hide

to commit to another

to make that leap


is mine to keep

don’t think too much

or you’ll go mad

enjoy every moment

that we have

uneasy feeling, leave me be

I want to feel free
