Simply 6 Minutes – Escape

Trish’s contribution to Simply 6 Minutes.

RANDOM THOUGHTS by Trish

#simply6minutes

There is only one way
To escape this cell
These planks of pain
Their own form of hell

The light beckons
But the light kills
Many have risked
Its radiant kiss

It sloughs off skin
Melts through flesh
Inhales each scream
As limbs fall away

Like a helpless babe
You cry and crawl
There is no escape
Passed that white maw

Too late one sees
The rot that seeps
At the edge of light
Sucking greedily

There is only one way
Only this chance
That traffic through agony
One person will advance

But will it be me?
There is only one way.
