Iyanthie De Alwis - Can't Get Away

Can't Get Away

Run like the angry train
Can't get away
Leap from the station
Run to the wild
Can't get away

Running down the mountain road
Hiding in the fences
Keep away from the painted door
Can't get away

Following like a thunderstorm
Nowhere to hide
Bursting sparks into the wild
Can't get away

Laughing like the crazy demon
Fingers unfurled and stretched
Screeching out the hideous cry
Couldn't get away.



 I write best when I’m experiencing strong emotions, especially negative. Writing is therapeutic for me and helps me cope. This is one of many where I’m trying to cope with and overcome anger.
