Escape:

In my sleep I escape

to a quiet, peaceful place

Far away from the mess of reality

When I'm there instead of here,

it's calm

and painless

No dark thoughts

aggravate me,

and the world

seems undisturbed

But...

When the sun shines

my eyes reluctantly open,

and it's all still here

The mess isn't gone

It is lifted away

with the shimmering moon

And it comes crashing back

with the burning sun

Calmness is slowly pulled away

with a quiet sigh

Pain comes flooding back

and I scream inside

Peace gently brushes my lips

with a soft kiss goodbye

Now I'm vulnerable

I cannot escape 

like I do in my dreams

There is no where to hide 

I have to face

my life,

reality,

the truth...

I cannot run away

unless I put in my headphones

and float freely to my fantasy

while the sound of music blasting

drowns out the noise of my thoughts

I want to go away

I want to be unrecognizable

I want to breathe again

I need to escape.
