 Gaping


We found a gap in the fence.

Someone had made it, 

that gaping hole in the wire,

hoping to climb through, 

hoping to head towards the light, 

to leave the darkness behind,

to escape the madness here,

hoping,

hoping.

But now the light has become too bright.

It’s blinding us.

We can see less than in the darkness.

Our mouths open, aghast

with the horror of it all,

gaping,

gaping

through the gap that leads to nowhere.
