Nowhere Out ~ POEM

by Savannah Hendricks


His tears fell with the rhythm of the rain

            Streaming down the diminutive window

Her captivation with a creased photo of a retriever

            Held firmly between unkept fingertips

He glared at grimy walls

            Whispering names from his lips

Locks and alarms

            Bars and codes

Time existing through television

            Memories and nightmares

They filled paper cups

            Water to help the colors slide down throats

Her fingers tapped

            A code in her mind

            Nowhere out it screamed

            Nowhere out

    Sounds like a cool intro to a thriller or mystery.

  3. It’s beautiful! Reminds me of dark neo gothic symbolism… Like Edgar Allen Poe in the Matrix-era… And to me it speaks: Me and my soul understanding the true meaning of existence… At least for now… Keep on writing! You’re doin’ it great!
