AWOL
by Phedre


A wall, life, holds us in, teaching us of desire, and hunger to supersede its grasp.
This wall encompasses us, and with its ominous enclosure we fight to see the world.
Hoping always to find the outside greener still.
We pass through this world of limitations trying to burst through them without taking our leave...
Not knowing the joy we have now is passing swiftly by.
We touch the others around us in terse moments of suffering or joy,
and clenched in emotion we walk away absent without leave.
