I Must Forsake Walls

by Zachary A. Horn

I have
too many rooms
needing
filled.

Too many
empty spaces
barren walls and
looming ceilings.

All yearning
for a bigger
life than I
care to live.

I wanted
space to be
to breathe
to be free.

But spaces
bound by walls
are too expansive
or small.

Judgmentally
barren
or stiflingly
filled.

I wanted space
but for freedom
I must forsake
walls.
