surface

you feel it
until it takes
a little more
time to withdraw

walk
you walk
to the exit
door

conquer it
you conquer
through torrid
isolation

you don’t like
what is and
what must and
you don’t understand

you are the
show and it
never ends

    Brilliant poem. Indeed, people often seek the exit door without realizing it is all an act and that they are the stars of their own show.
