Escape

Dank and dark the way
Lichen and moss cover the walls
Squelch underfoot
Nervously I push on

On towards the light
But a pinhole in the darkness
A welcoming invite
Escape from the gloom

Brighter and closer
The gate to freedom open
Blinding is the sun
For eyes deprived for so long

I see the upward stairs
Tempting me ever onwards
Encouraging me
Offering my salvation from the dark
