Escapes

How many escapes it would take to close the doors on all the escape routes? Feeling like a prankster, who wishes to befuddle the truth by running away Many disguises and excuses, masks and sly speeches, are not enough The self-imposed wall waiting for those hands to puncture them for an escape Each of them unique portals to a dark land of delusion and defeat … Continue reading Escapes

Judgement is Inevitable

The judgements can be alienated, ostracised, and inhumed They pierce the conscience- the good, bad, and ugly Traces everywhere; the naked eyes cannot see, but the heart feels Judgements become a constant phantasm Unnecessary?
