Escape   I wonder in the shadows of doubt.
Each footstep made with great stride.
Eyes wide open scared of emptyness,
Heart pounding to the drum of wonderment and fearfulness.

Days seem distance
Nights seem endless
The candle burning into puddles of fragile clearness.

Gazing upon the window ledge
Amazed by the stars,
Memories escape the mind,
Down deep they stay wedged.

Laughter a rare comodity
Tears a know phantom
The person behind the mask an oddity.

Yearning for the day to break
Yearning for a smile not fake
Opening the door to future gates. Stephanie Lynn Delaney
