.... Escape



She just wants to run
Or better still, escape
They defined it as fun
Sorrow covered her like a cape
There was the minute, almost insignificant one
She couldn't help but wonder about its shape
A play with words, call it pun
As she is forcefully stuck up with a tape
The beast drives through, one by one
Series of screaky sounds painfully escape
Help! Please! Anyone!
No one, just this beast, this ape
The beast is done
Mist finely suspends in the air like vape
Another life had begun
Sorrow covered her like a cape

I can feel her sadness in this heartbreaking poem.

The words depict this story perfectly.
