Poetry: escape

want desperately,
but cannot have…
run away.
new identity-new life-new love

a dream phasing in and out…
focus focus focus

i don’t want to anymore

let the current carry me
where it leads
no yesterday-no tomorrow-
just here, now—all.

lungs burn
throat dry
i cannot straddle two worlds anymore.

i am tired.

fall fall fall
hard for a love unreturned
and through the blurry window
discover i have no home.

too small for me.
i cannot dwell here now.
