EscapeWhen I stay up at night thinkingWhen I daydream in the middle of the dayWhen I sit and write my poetryWhen I look into the digital sea that is the internetWhen I smile or laugh at a joke with no meaningWhen I zone outWhen I lie down for the nightWhen I stare into the complete darkness before I depart to the land of dreamsI escapeEscapeI try to climb a wall to the rope that will allow me to escapeBut the walls are to smoothPatted down with the solid and smooth surface of painSorrowMiseryThis thing I call lifeAm I any good at it?Am I going to fail as predetermined by the world?Am I going to end and be represented as the nothingness that I see?I try to escape these harsh questions
But low and behold they follow me as if I packed themMaybe I didBetween the socks and shirts
. NoWith the toothbrush
. NoI think I packed it in the deep subconscious of the maze I call my mindUnfortunately for me there is no escapeNo solutionJust nothing
Kittens.Kittens are evil I tell you, its true!With fur made of Velcro and super glue.Their big yellow eyes are poison no doubtAnd they hack and they gag til their insides are out.They paw and they claw and they shred all your stuff,Theyll reduce your couch to wood splinters and fluff.They cough and they purr and they hiss and they mew,And if you arent careful theyll scratch you up too.But one thing so bad it can top all of that:When a kitten grows up it turns into a CAT.
HugYou walk up to me.I look at you like a cat that is unknowingly trying to imitate an emote.As your approach comes to an end you put your arms out. Both going past my body on either side.You smile.Then simply, "Hug?"I do not comprehend this word, your intent nor punctuation.Your arms tighten around me and your chin rests on my shoulder.I stand thereponderingwhat is this new emotion.
