Too far down the road to still suffer stabbing pain.
I was entangled in a relationship which
can be described as claustrophobic and fearful.
Far away from everyone I loved, no way to get
around. Walls began to close in on me,
as did the stench of alcohol and piss.
Only with help of an extraordinary friend,
who packed me and my belongings into a truck,
was I able to escape.
Glinting in sunlight
a diaphanous web stretched
fly caught in trap
