Escape

So often I seek escape from this life that has become mine. But there’s no real place to escape to. I seek escape from the thoughts that swirl inside my head. I seek escape from the feeling of unease that follows me.

I can go outside into the open air and it can still feel like the sky is pushing down on me. I can drive for hours down a back country road and still feel both lost and too close to all that has happened.

I still seek escape from the pressure that grows in my chest. I still seek escape from being rejected over and over by the person I thought I could put all of my trust in. I still seek escape from the memories of what was, what could have been.

I seek escape into the worlds that aren’t mine through novels and shows – but there’s no escaping the reality of life once they are done. I seek escape in places that aren’t home, hoping they will ease the heaviness.

There’s no place far enough away to forget betrayal.
There’s no place far enough away to forget the hurt.
There’s no place far enough away to forget the words that were said.
There’s no place far enough away to forget the tears.
There’s no place far enough away to forget…

But still I seek the escape.
