Random Thoughts

A Quiet Room

Many, many words in
very few lines

an arm, a leg, a glance
another figure asks, "romance?"

A shadow falls, a reminder
a repetition of too many times

A color, a triangle, a leap
of joy and freedom

Behind a wall,
inside a fence

A time for play and
Self expression

Oh but if only it could be
The whole of the world and not

Just the corner of
A quiet room
