Escape Velocity

30 years in a Hole

I hold so many things

within my memory,

my soul, my self

and steadily,

the weight

slows the revolving

of my life,

but as the gravity gathers

and my grip lessens,

like a skater

pulling in my arms,

the rotation increases,

the world blurs

from the spin,

and I am flung into that

Fortress of Solitude.

Me too;-) it could probably be improved on, but I think I frames the need to remain with the situation until the need to separate simply becomes greater than any desire can overcome ;-)

About The Title

I AGREE with Rabbit Who Lets Us Run With All - I love iceskating in the Olympics - they get extra points for not "traveling" - the circle made by blade on ice must be small and perfect and fast and unroaming - nice image. ~a~
