Frameless

Boarders
Have long been removed
Thoughts uncontained,
Freedom of choice
An understatement.

We see the clearer picture,
Clear-cut edges
Limitless perspective.

But, within that frame
That boundary
Lay an under-appreciated
Sense of security.

Not being able
To experience
What we haven’t
Brings an urge
To pounce
At the first glimpse.

Sometimes,
The result
Equals
Diminishing control.
For once you see
What’s beyond the curtain
No matter how horrid
Its no longer your choice
To unsee it.

Dante
