Escape


the cold marble
echos the
sounds of
your steps
that i follow

yet
as you rise beyond
my reach

i hesitate

unsure
questioning

this journey
that is not of my own
making

Michael Offutt said...

Great photo and use of imagery. It's interesting to think of a rise as a form of escape when the traditional way of escaping is to run as fast you can away from something. Your poem says to me that I need to rise above to escape the unpleasant things beneath me. hmmm

I saw the thumbnail of this at the creative exchange and wanted to see more. there's a hint of mystery in both the photo and the words. it isn't apparent that you used a texture which I really like. I'm curious how you edited it - the steps. I really like it, very much.
