I can't ever seem to escape my thoughts. If I could just take a vacation from my brain...

My mind is a prison. I am trapped as thoughts bounce and echo off lime green and neon pink walls.

The sounds are loud; the colors are loud, everything is just...loud. I look out from behind smooth,

worn down bars - smooth and worn down from the familiar and frequent grip of my hands in desperation for escape.

There's a constant film playing on a snowy television in the corner. The scene is always the same but the person opposite me always changes.

Sometimes it's someone familiar and close; sometimes it's someone I barely know - a face I've walked past once or twice.

Sometimes, if I'm lucky, I can close my eyes and tune it out - to the point where it becomes a dull static in my ears and there

are dull lights behind my eyelids. But it never lasts long. I open my eyes and everything hits me full force

- the sounds, the colors, the realization that I haven't escaped. That I can't escape.
