Read Poetry: Escape, by Farzleen F. Khan

She escaped
The dreadful dread
Broke free from
The clutches
Waiting to hold her
Captive deep
Behind locked gates
Wrathed by a fury
She escaped
She escaped
The feeling of
Having walked
A familiar street
Hassled by hustles
Bogged down
By the boredom
Of having flashing
Camera strobes
Delude her mind
She escaped
She escaped
The crazy act
Of sensationalizing
Everything from
Her morning jogs
To her dragging her
Feet after sips
On the rocks
She escaped
She escaped
The tabloid scenes
The torrid trash talk
The humiliating torment
The badmouthing imprints
The reality that sets her apart
The glam, glit and glory
She escaped
The foundation of her sanity
