I flee my broken soul, in fear
Every moment and with every beat of my heart I’m running, running,running
The scariest monsters and bogeymen lurk in the dark chasms of me
They latch onto me like a second shadow
Like a cape, fluttering in the wind as I run away
My obsessions are my security blanket that I cling onto for safety
Anything that can knock me out cold and sway me away
Like driftwood bobbing in the calm sea, going everywhere yet nowhere
I gaze at the escapist fictions canopying overhead like twinkling, fading stars
Filling my mind,draining my heart.
Can you escape if you can never leave?
