Hearts' Mending (5)
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
I seized my single chance ere it could flee,
Amazed I'd been accepted. And before
A year had passed, as hasty as could be,
I fled my homeland, fam'ly, failures, more...
I was convinced that all the blessed roots
That tied me to my happy past had rotted;
No one would miss me. Better grow new shoots
Within a newer garden, freshly plotted,
Than bottle up morosity and stew,
Regrets and longing poisoning each other.
Replanted, I still wished I could renew
Those bonds; you'd been my sister and my brother...
Escape is never final, for, I find,
One can't outrun one's feelings, heart, or mind.
