Escape #Micropoetry #Micropoem #Poetry

I try to close my eyes

Shut out the world

But it’s still there when I awake

There is no escape

This #micropoem is in response to #Poetheme 315 run by


Exposed – #MicroPoetry

Your stare


pierces through

my walls

uncovering my soul

revealing exactly

who I am

and I can’t seem

to look away
