Flight

I lay on my side

Face away from the door

Stay still, slow my breath

Pray he thinks I’m asleep

Then a breeze shocks my back

The sheet lifts, the bed shifts

Hot breath at my neck

No luck tonight, fear chokes my heart

I go into a trance, nothingness

The familiar comfort of the void

Leave my body, don’t need it

My soul and I, we float into the wallpaper

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: trance

  1. I agree with all the comments above, a ‘like’ is not the right word but you write from the heart and your resillience is inspiring! I hope sharing something so personal helps you flourish and also helps many others who are not yet ready to write out their pain.
