As the Walls

As the Walls

a Poem by Raquel Swann

As the walls closed in,

I lingered and,

watched for awhile to wonder

what would happen if they did

just that.

As the walls closed in,

they inched closer and closer,

there were many escape routes,

I thought I’d just slip out of one,

at the last minute,

like a super hero

at the end of a movie.

My movie,

will be much different.

As the walls closed in,

Before I knew it,

they were right on top of me.

and there was nowhere to run,

nowhere to hide as they closed in,

the walls that is.

As the walls close in,

I stand here different than before

the walls started to collapse.

If I was this person

when it all started,

I wouldn’t be here

getting crushed

as the walls closed in.
