Good Escape

Janet Kuypers
(01/26/12)

I sit around here
waiting for you

that’s all I do, you know
wait for you

when you turn me on
all I want

is to make you happy
but you need to take control

you need to let me know
what you want from me

what do you want
to see in me

do I have something
somewhere inside of me

to clear you mind
of your troubles

I know you must have
a lot on your mind

and I hope
I’m a good escape for you

I’ll be here waiting
whenever you need me

whenever you want
a chance to escape again

I’ll be here for you

 

(this poem is about a television)
