Cape covered in haze,
a filet of fog masking
his way. The strain
of traipsing through vapor
is hard to sustain. He is close
to caving in, but the challenge
of finding the old seaside
cottage, enflames his determination.
Deranged, as his family labels
him, he knows he can exchange
those invisible chains–they are
not aware of, that weigh him down
in mind and body–for freedom.
He will view the expanse
of grasses, and ocean–clear
water to clarify his mind.
Feigning a stoicism
he does not quite measure
up to, he ploughs ahead.
