Society Poetry: ‘Quicksand’ – by Katie Rees

‘Quicksand’ – by Katie Rees

Small town, idle gossip,

Shutting out the rest of the world.

You tell yourself it’s a temporary stop,

But find that your feet are caught.

 

Same faces, similar stories,

A life spent in one place.

Surely it’s a matter of time before you leave

Sucked in further, now you’re up to your knees.

 

Motivation gone, desire buried,

Your world is so much smaller than before.

Outside influence withdraws and you start to see…

You’re waist deep and unlikely to ever leave.
