wanderer

by erenah

my mother used to say I "geographise"

by which she meant,

when I can't bear things, I remove myself from them

physically; utilise distance to negate

what I don't want to confront

or can't bear to

I've found moorings of a kind, but now it seems

my wings, feathered iridescent

with by-gone suffering

may only be good for flying away..

it's safer than facing all the yesterdays
