No Way Out a poem by RestLeSsD

He lived his life
On terms his own
He needed no one
He was alone.

He liked it this way,
No reason to worry.
His days were his own
No reason to hurry.

Yet there were those times
When he felt a pain.
A longing for more, a need
He could not explain.

He had been alone for so long now
He wasn’t sure if he could allow
Himself to trust another human
He didn’t know if he even knew how.

He just wanted to shout?
What was this about?
Why must things change?
. . . Is there no way out?!

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

    The large space gives the size of the loneliness of the cowboy … the only way out is a person with whom to share his life..
