Distraction is The Game

when caged tears
demand freedom  
distraction is the game  
I play with my prisoners  
silly, furry, tiny beasts  
with wholly humanistic  
adorable characteristics  
laughing, bouncing babies  
unfettered joy  
on cherubic cheeks  
sad tales of impossibility  
wrapped up so neatly  
with happy endings  
parading themselves  
across my screen  
unshackles them carefully  
opens the cell quietly  
releasing them  
much more safely  
than swinging  
the iron door wide  
allowing them access  
to the same air  
I struggle to breathe  
in short, shallow sips  
and I wait to see
if they will make a break for it  
bursting from lengthy incarceration  
to wreak their havoc  
in a dead run  
down my face
to chase after you
