Leapt

Itching to know the cool breeze upon her back, urging her.
To herself be a verse of possibilities rather than the chorus on repeat,
She answered yes to questions she’d dared not say aloud.

Then as they slept, she crept,
Leapt.
And walked away.

  1. I too love this line: To herself be a verse of possibilities rather than the chorus on repeat.

    It made me wonder on the back story and what happened next ~ Good one Jo-Anne.

    Thanks for joining us ~

  2. I would like to repeat the chorus of complements regarding the line about being a verse to herself. That was great! I like even more the poignant mystery in “answering yes to questions she’d dared not say aloud.” I have learned today that my marriage may likely end in coming years as I answer yes to some of those questions myself. This lovely quadrille means a lot to me just now

  3. I’ve felt that cool breeze. It feels like chains breaking.
    I love the ambiguity in this poem. Or, at least, I find it ambiguous. Does she literally walk away? Does she literally leap? Is she creeping into freedom or flying out the window? Both interpretations speak to me.
    Lovely, Jo.
