Escape by Claretta Webb

Escape

as evidenced by my smile
I cheat death again
The dry dark truth touches nothing
my soul
perhaps
leaping further now
it is darkness within that is awakened
I am
see me
I am here
of not the blood that falls from my thighs
the terror
my screams enlist your help
but...
you are not there
Death becomes you
...as it sleeps
so do I.
