Captivity scrapes the wall paint, As the white plaster steals a glance, Hands nurture the window pane, Trapping white clouds A ten by ten feet galaxy, Etched in muses Cognizance, oblivion, Cognizance an endless loop. A pause in my memory lane, As my chest sinks into yearnings, longings.
/A board of crows, Swaying palm trees, A sky dotted with pink kites, Wires above my head, Cutting the welkins A mundane chaos from the neighbour A sunset I befriended once An epiphany crawling up my heart/
What is the good in goodbyes? What is the fair in farewells?
A kid walks into a concrete structure, A girl walks out of her house, She begs the clock to halt, She begs the locks to defy, Eternity passes sooner. She stands unfazed.
The sixteen year old, Draws a map from her home to her new house, Nine blocks and twenty one sighs. Yet leaving takes courage. How do you get away from home? How do you embrace a house?
