Escape

Escaped…

With only a breath of life….

tethered by a crimson thread

to an ignorant and unknowing host…

Trying with desperation to be heard….

or seen…

or just understood….

And then…

with a flippant turn….

Blackly sucked back inside…

Dead again…

airless and solitary….

With just a little less hope…

and happiness..

than the day…

before…
