I Want Out ( Pt.1 Of Stages)

A Poem by Gianna Jackson
"

There are a few parts to this collect and if it isn't clear already, Stages deals with the different levels of separation. Not only romantic relationships, but familial ties and friendships.^__^

I Want Out (Pt.1 Of Stages)

I want out
Of this afflicting corrosion
Of this cage
Of these chains


Let me breathe
The fresh, brisk air of freedom
The wondrous curiosity of the future
The alluring excitement of adventure


Cut these strings
That hold, restrict and control me
That protect, connect, and console me
That loved, sheltered and enriched me


Walk away
From the years of warmth, family and structure
From the fights, tears and shattering glass
From the promises, secrets, distance and omission


Fessing up
To my lover
To my best friend
To my partner in crime


That the life we built can no longer withstand the destructive force of this relentless storm


That the more we try, the more it hurts
That the void between us is much bigger than three little words


That the dust will never settle because these pieces aren’t worth saving
That we’re chasing down shadows from our past, but those strangers are never coming back
