Away from this place

After The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

By Risha Hendrix

I don’t want to admit it

But I must say I feel some relief

And I must not lose my strength and say

He loves me

I tried to talk

Tell him how I feel

How I wish he would let me go

Yet I was crying in his arms

He was my comfort after all

I never mentioned this to anyone

But I always knew

And there are things that happened

That nobody knows but me

And I must say

I don’t like it here!
