I crave these four white walls.

I crave the same breaths and beats

day after day so that maybe

One day I will understand the deeper meaning

Or maybe even, the Answer.


I feel trapped here- the most familiar feeling

Because when I leave, I am also trapped

By the weight of my dreams and my visions of the future.


I am tied down by responsibilities and also tied down by the possibilities

That make my head spin.


The sky spans forever and ever until it makes my heart ache

And again, I crave those four white walls that cement my feet in place.

“It is safe here and only here” they echo and I am not sure if I believe them

Or if I should.
