ESCAPE.

ESCAPE.

You say you knew who I was
Then you must have known
I was consumed by the need to escape.

If so you hid the solace in your eyes
Denied the light that gave it birth
Pretended worth was something sedentary.

Peering past your hideaway
Surely it was obvious
Languishing here in self pity
A life not fit for a fool.

What was it you saw
For it wasn’t the realisation
That hung like precipitation in the air.

Well, where was the understanding
The innocent smile not just to beguile
Requiem for the truth untold
Briar be the path accosted.

Never to divulge the premonition
But dry the gage for better days
When memory smacks, back on you.
Was it too much to spare the rule
No book to read, no silver lining
Glisten does the cicerones soliloquy.

Like the spiral of a cigarette
To goer comes the nothingness
We righteously deserve.

Seeing is not knowing, sight is mislaid
Chameleon, chimera, reptilian
What once was, was once what was.

But recidivously it isn’t like that at all
Seeking not the chemical glow, forlorn
And still replete with communion respite
Aching in the glow from neon persuasion
Taking journalese answers and wreaking vengeance.

Yes my dear, now this scene is clear
Do you see your misplaced reaction
Rescind the former declaration of recalcitrance
In these no flower to place before this grave stone
Can there be a moral in worlds fearful of the void
You said you knew. Where are you now?!
