and we both are free

wondering and wandering
how to find escape
from the revolving
that swirls in your cornered view
as I calmly banter through
seeking the blocked window
that you have masked

to keep me in
to keep me out

do not tell me you possess love
when you have befriended hate
do not tell me you hold truth
when you have unleashed lie

let me walk away
as my words become
behind the sun
that draws me close
and the distance
that keeps you far

and you are free
to hate
and I am free
to love

About Melissa Leigh

I believe that every life is full of endless moments that help you, hurt your, change you, inspire you, and allow you to mold yourself into the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. Stories exist in all of us and need to be shared in order to grow.
