Inescapable

She is drowning,

In a flood of her tears.

Her hand is slipping,

And so is her hope.

She claws at her subconscious,

Only to receive silence.

In those few moments,

She ages years.

She tries to escape,

Knowing that it is hopeless.

And therein lies her problem,

How can you escape the inescapable?

    1. That is not what I initially thought of but yes I see why you would think that….
      Honestly it can be about anything that you want it to be. I have heard so many different interpretations!It is always interesting to hear the different interpretations! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi. I find it interesting. Poems do draw an abstract thought, doesn’t it? The writer may have a different thought while writing it but delivers another set of thought to his/her readers. But what I thought is that feeling of “no way out but to face my problems” …

    yes that type of feeling willll make you feel like you’ve aged for years…. that thing that you keep putting aside for as long as your subconscious can negate the facts so you can, for but one more time, put it aside.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. great poem – i saw it as a woman who is struggling with the fact that she is single and all her dreams of connection and family seem to be fading as the years add on and she is starting to lose hope…

  3. Awesome poem! I interpreted it as someone struggling with depression or self-abuse? It’s an incredibly common problem at the moment unfortunately and from the visual imagery described there seems to be an outsiders perspective to seeing someone have to struggle by them self, knowing you can’t help.. But I think it’s a really deep poem with lots of different interpretations available.

    1. Yes I completely agree with you.
      Struggling with depression or seeing someone struggle with depression is the absolute worst.
      But you can always help, talking to the person is always the first step…
      Never think that you can’t be of assistance because you can! πŸ™‚

  4. I could see that it you we showing struggle with in and out. I car relate and most everyone can relate. This is something that it is all what you want to make it into. It don’t sound very personal. Or directed to one even. Is that what you were going for because that is what I gathered from the poem.
