ESCAPE

I long for escape,
from the faceless milling crowds on the pavement
at the shopping malls, parks and beaches

I long for escape,
from the blank soulless stares of eyes
that invade my sight and rob me of mine

I long for escape,
from the mundanity of rushing commuters
on trains and buses as they seek escape from one stop to the next

I long for escape,
from the dreary buildings whose pinnacles
impale the blue skies with unnatural shapes

I long for escape,
from the drone of idle chatter spilling out
mantras of dreams, wants and desires

I long for escape,
from overzealous overpaid religious leaders
blasphemously promising salvation … may their souls burn forever

I long for escape,
from visages of innocents suffering
at hands of the greedy human traffickers …  may these greedy bastards burn too

I long for escape,
from the darkness seeping into my soul
churning my thoughts screaming “There is NO ESCAPE!”
