a slight of step

a slight of step

it is easy
to stay inside a net
to never venture out
to never bring in
remaining motionless

sucking life
out of every corner
to pass a day
constant isolation
from creeping fear

a moment will come
when the staled air
pushes the door open
so to breathe in
a bit of new

causing a reaction
with a slight of step
brings to life
more possibilities
beyond window panes

today never stays
tomorrow is a gain
giving a way to be
in the change
all about the free

it is easier
to walk into love
for the letting go
than to be a hostage
to the mind's fears

I am by definition not an overly word expressive person, even though I love the English language...I find this to be very wonderfully written and you catch the readers imagination I like that sort of thing...

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
