sanctuary

by erenah

"In the mountains",

Eliot said,

"There you feel free":

there are times when civilisation becomes too much for me;

when I have to go into the high places, retreat

from a life I am assured is ordinary:

school, internships, the trauma of a broken, addict family

the perennial anxiety of having *nothing*

if I don't manage to succeed - then there's the

all-the-while wondering whether any of it

is worth anything

so I turn to wandering - solitarily

and I draw solace from the wilderness:

majestic, mollifying;

remedy.
