Staircase-sane

Updated on January 5, 2016
Source

She sat in the room
That had the perfect view of the moon
She looked out the window
Which she closed after staring below

She went to the first floor
Trying to pass time in doing chores
She climbed up back to the second
Where she can finally have peace, she reckoned

She went to the other room
The one with no view of the moon
She saw the baby in bed
Asleep at last, her brother's wife said

Musical accompaniment: In My Place by Coldplay

She dismissed the idea of going out
As it will leave her anxious and full of doubt
She dreamed about another place
One where she can have some space

She sighed, loud as a mouse
While the cats spread themselves around the house
So she sat in the stairs
And no one noticed she was even there

Have you ever felt alone in your own home?

      Alone but not lonely. Yah, it happens and when it does, try to find a muse to create instead and keep busy.

      Nice piece.

      Surabhi, that addition was fantastic! It was even better than mine, I think.

      Jonas, you have a gift with the written word. Beautiful!

      She felt a sudden abyss

      A touch of her soul or a celestial kiss

      The stairs were empty and dusty a little

      A twinkle of faith profoundly glitter

      I just poured a little more :)
