Keyhole

I noticed a rope today,
It looked sturdy and able to hold my weight.
So I used it to climb,

I felt myself getting out of the eternal tower,
And I ran until my sides couldn’t take it anymore,
I breathed the open air greedily
I was free

I noticed a rope today
And I saw kids on swings, it looked strong and able to keep me up,
So I used it to swing,

I felt myself jumping off of the swing,
Arms flailing, feet kicking,
Landing so far away from my sorrows,
I was free

I noticed a rope today,
And I saw them jumping over it, it looked fast and able to keep help me run ,
So I used it to jump,

I felt myself skipping so hard,
That the momentum propels me to space,
Away from this enclosed abode,
I was free

I noticed a rope today,
And they used it to tie my arms and take me away,
They used it as handcuffs,

And I realized it was all a dream,
I saw them climb, swing and skip,
I lived life through a keyhole and
They were free

I noticed a rope today,
But this time, it becomes a noose.
