She wants to escape.
This endless maze
Of blame and despair.
Yet she knows she deserves it
For every sin she's done.
So how can she bear to think of release
When she's right where she belongs?
Instead, she lies against
The crumbling, gray walls
Looking towards an exit
That is never there.
Tears stream down her face
For all the pain and damage she's done
And for every fall taken
In trying to fix it all.
Yet her best wasn't enough
To try and undo her mistakes.
So the walls of the maze crumble
As she starts to wander aimlessly again,
Unable to squash the senseless hope
That kills her a little bit more
Every time she fails.
She knows she'll never escape
This continuous maze
Of self-reproach and agony.
So lately I've been doing poetry in my Creative Writing class which is why I haven't been around with new works. And I don't know why I haven't thought about posting some of my class assignments until just now.
This is an elegic poem, or to use the proper word: elegy, that I did for our final poetry assignment in class. We've moved on to playwriting now and it's been a lot of fun although it's a very different style of writing than I'm used to. Guess it's a good thing I usually like challenges.
Anyway, sorry, got off topic a bit. So I hope you all enjoyed/liked my poem and reviews of (almost)any kind are welcome! :D (Just please no flames)
