Anywhere Else:

With eyes like saucers

And a heart like a grave

I lay in my coffin

Alone and awake

Praying for freedom

Begging for help

Wishing that I was

Anywhere else.


My senses overload

My thoughts race

My heart yearns

For a tranquil place.

Or to switch lives

From this quiet Hell

To have the chance to be

Anyone else.


I’m sure there is somewhere

Where I can be free

To escape from the things

That suffocate me.

Where time has no meaning

Where thought isn’t cheap

Where troubles dissolve

In my dreamless sleep.


Where I’m not constrained

By constraints that aren’t real

And all that’s important

Are the things that I feel.

No more despair

A World free from hurt

A World where I feel I get

What I deserve.


And I fully expect

That this place I belong

Is going to be the next

Place that I go to

When I move on.


So maybe there I’ll find peace with myself.

But I thought that when I was everywhere else.
