Open Call , Poems -Tara Sattar

 

Trapped

By Tara Sattar

 

The room still smells of the perfume phial that you broke.
The stenches of cigarettes still haunt the blanket.
As I sit in one corner of the four walls,
they all remind me of you.

 

I want to escape.
But I am a masochist.
You are like a hangover,
that keeps me running back to the bar,
where you drink,
and I dance.

 

I confront your indecent eyes,
Indulged in booze,
As you watch me move.
And my exposed skin.
