Poem - Exit's Place

The poem “Exit’s Place” is about the role of writing in the scribbler’s life. The opportunity exists for the writer to explore themselves, become lost in the revelations, and then move beyond to new horizons.


Exit's Place

I'm in a prison of my words
both the jailer and the ward
within a cell my hands has wrote
with poems inscribed through the years

so many odes provided links
drops of water in the lake
strung on the page every day
until I plunged into the depths

madly scribbling without regard
the muse was present as a guide
demanding I purge myself
of the darkness we all embrace

in its place the light displays
walls enclosing on all sides
pushing inwards as I grow
in response a diamond grows

scratches put to the stone
each poem is another groove
bending life to reveal
shadows hiding from essays

these secrets are laid bare
now the poet turns the key
marking time before escape
pointing to the exit's place.
